Adjusting or replacing a toilet flapper valve

Some toilets have a flapper valve instead of a tankball. The toilet flapper valve works the same as the tankball but it's attached to the base of the overflow toilet tube. A hinge allows the toilet flapper to move up and down like a door. A chain is connected to the toilet flapper and leads up to the flush lever.

Pushing the flush lever pulls on the toilet chain and raises the toilet flapper valve. This action allows the water to drain out. Like the toilet tankball, the flapper is hollow and full of air so it floats and stays in the raised, open position until the water level in the toilet tank falls.
Here's how to adjust or replace the toilet flapper valve:

1 Make sure that the chain that connects the toilet flush lever with the flapper has about 1/2 inch of slack in it. When you push the toilet lever, the flapper should raise high enough to stay open but the chain should not be too tight to prevent the toilet flapper from falling back in place.
2 Check that the toilet flapper moves freely up and down. To test this, reach into the toilet tank and lift the flapper by the chain and let go. It should fall back into the toilet outlet pipe. To adjust, loosen the screw holding the bracket around the toilet overflow tube and move the flapper up or down, right or left as needed to establish good alignment with the outlet pipe.
3 Align the flapper with the outlet pipe. If the toilet flapper isn't aligned with the outlet pipe, loosen the clamp that holds the flapper in place and realign it so it falls directly into the outlet pipe. Then retighten the clamp.
4 Replace the toilet flapper. If the flapper falls into the outlet pipe but still doesn't completely stop the water flow, replace it. Loosen the screw that holds the bracket on the overflow pipe and pull the toilet flapper assembly up and off the overflow pipe. Take it to your local home center and purchase a replacement. Reinstall the new flapper in the reverse order that you removed the old, following the installation instructions provided by the toilet manufacturer.
A toilet ballcock that doesn't completely close can be another cause of a leaking toilet.
To determine if your problem is with the floatball or ballcock, just look into the tank and note if the float ball is actually floating. If the float ball is partially submerged, it should be replaced.
