In response to Re: Old Toilet, New Valve
If you have a chrome "flush valve" that flushes the toilet, the new one may have the low water mechanism in it. That can be changed to the higher usage one that your toilet needs.

: I live in a 1937 apartment building. I have an old porcelain toilet with no tank--just pipes that go into the wall. I never had any problems with it until one day it started making a running noise and bubbling like a miniature hot tub. The apartment manager put on a new valve of some sort to solve the problem. Ever since then, the toilet does not flush well. Often leaves paper/waste in the bowl and has to be flushed twice. Water doesn't fill to a consistent level in the bowl.

: Manager claims this is normal for an old toilet with a new valve. Is this true? Any insights? Thanks.
