A small intermittent water leak in the flapper flush valve unit which
also causes "water hammer" in the copper piping in the basement.
New flapper valves did not solve the problem
Sanding rough spots off the seat did not solve the problem
The toilet is 10 years old and I wonder if gasket between the flush
valve body and the toilet itself has deteriorated to allow a small leak?
I live in Burlington, Ontario, Canada and Eljer Canada cannot get
parts for Eljer toilets and donot know who does
Is there any way that I can get parts for this toilet. I probably need
a flush valve/ flapper assembly which includes the interface
1) If spud washer between tank and bowl is leaking, you will get moisture on outside of tank in that area.Use dry paper towel and run around area for evidence of moisture.2) The flush valve is sold separately for typical 2-part toilets. Sold at hardware/home center.See image of product:http://www.furniturefind.com/Fluidmaster-507C-FLM1009.html3
) Home centers also see spud washers for typical 2-part toilet.You can use your old spud washer, and you can seal it during re-assembly using rectorsealSee image of rectorsealhttp://www.fixya.com/support/r7929008-replace_garbage_disposal4
) 'water hammer' is when pipes make banging or rattling noise when faucet or valve is shut off.Add air chamber to water line near faucet or valve.Air chamber is 18" piece of pipe with cap that sticks up from water line.Since water will not compress, shutting off flow of water stops forward motion of column of water causes energy to be dispersed into the pipes.Air can be compressed. Adding air chamber is like putting shock absorber into water line, so forward energy of water harmlessly compresses the air for a moment.http://www.renovation-headquarters.com/water%20hammer.htm Read More At : Eljer...
