American Standard ghost flushing


So, doing a little web surfing leads me to believe this is a widespread problem across the board in all of their models of toilets. We bought ours a few years ago and all of a sudden recently it's started leaking into the bowl causing the tank to refill when the level gets low.

I changed the flapper gasket thing yesterday thinking this would resolve the issue, however it's still doing it.

Has anyone ever figured out a solution to this problem. Going to their FB page and reading the comments left by customers makes me think there's a lot of people out there with exactly the same problem, but American Standard isn't doing anything about it.

Edit: Forgot to mention we have the Champion 4.

Re: American Standard ghost flushing


I've corrected the leaking flush valve problem two different ways on 2 different toilets. ( not on American Standard ).

1) Installed complete new flush valve

2) Installed " Korky " flush valve re-build kit

Re-build kit is by far the faster of the two methods with by far less frustration. End result on both was successful.

Flusher fixer is also a good alternative.
