Re: Water Leaking into Eljer Toilet


Thanks, how difficult was it to repair the whole thing using korky?

Did you have to remove the tank from the bowl? Or can repair be done while everything stay at its place?

Thanks

The black ring visible in the kit is the new seat that adheres to the old seat with the silicone adhesive sealant seen in the kit. Directions are on the packaging. Drain tank, and follow the directions on package is all that's need to be done.

Re: Water Leaking into Eljer Toilet


Use flusher fixer by fluid master. You remove old flapper. Drain all water and dry clean the plastic the old flapper rested on then the flusher fixer has a putty on its bottom that makes a seal against the old flapper seal. Works fine last a long time!!!!

Re: Water Leaking into Eljer Toilet


SeniorSitizen, can you please share the link for the whole kit?


Ghostmaker, have you tried and used that one? That looks like a really neat idea

Thanks so much for the help, I truly appreciate it. Today after adjusting the chain height, there's no leak/drip so far, but it's not being used extensively either.

I am going to monitor it and will report back.

Thanks again folks

The second picture is the complete repair kit. I purchased mine at a plumbing supply. This link is very similar.
