Bob Cole's Tips
- Before doing any work on the toilet, turn off the water at the supply line. Flush the
toilet to drain any water inside the tank.
- If you need to replace the fill valve, I recommend using a universal replacement
fill valve from Fluidmaster. They work much better than the older style ballcock fill
- I recommend Corky brand flappers because they are made of a material that holds up well
to chemicals and the chlorine in our water.
