Review 1 for Master Plumber 3-Inch Rubber Toilet Flapper
Works just like it should, almost.
PostedFebruary 7, 2013
from Green Valley, Arizona
I found this item on the True Value website, not in the store. I ordered it, picked it up in the store (to save shipping), and was able to replace the old one with no fuss.
The old one was ancient and I'm sure was leaking. The reason I can't be positive is that I replaced the Fill Valve (which WAS malfunctioning) at the same time, so the toilet was constantly running anyway.
After replacing the fill valve (purchased at True Value, in-store) and replacing the old flapper with this new one (under review, which went in in a snap), things were much better. However, the toilet still leaks down about every 20 minutes and comes on to refill itself. I don't believe it is the flapper as I made sure it was lined up properly when installed and it seems soft and plyable. I did polish around the drain hole (that the flapper works in conjunction with) with some scouring powder to remove any rust / debris / general lumps and bumps, etc. and it feels and looks shiny, but to no avail, so I don't really know why it is still leaking down. The mating surfaces should be a good match with the work I'v done, but it still leaks! Maybe I will try some 800 grit wet sandpaper.
Pros: for old model toilets and still made, easy to install
Cons: toilet still leaks and i don't know why
I would recommend this to a friend!
