How do I replace the flapper, because my toilet is getting that "phantom flush" problem?


Answer by  Skullwing (746)

Lift the top of the back tank off. Undo the chain between the flush lever and the flapper. Lift the flapper off the center post and replace with new flapper.

First, turn off the water supply to the toilet, then flush the toilet to empty the tank. Make a note of the length of chain between the flush lever and the flapper. Disconnect the chain and old flapper, attach the new one, and hook up the chain again.

Shut the water supply off to the tank, flush the tank, remove the old flapper and reinstall the new one. Turn the water on and happy flushing.

First turn the water valve off! You must Hook both sides of the flapper to the pegs,which is at the bottom of the tank on both sides of the overflow tube! and test to see if the flapper moves up and down freely. Hook up the chain to the flush handle!
