In just minutes, you can find out if your toilet is wasting thousands of gallons of water due to an undiscovered water leak. Here's how:
1) Remove the tank lid, then flush.
2) After the flapper or tank ball drops and the tank refills, add several drops of dark food coloring (or a Fluidmaster Leak Detector Tablet).
3) Wait at least 20 minutes.
4) If any trace of color appears in the toilet bowl, there is a leak - most likely at the flush valve or flapper/tank ball.
Another way to check for leaks is to shut off the water at the wall before going to bed at night. Leave water in the tank and mark its level with a pencil. The next morning, if the level of water has gone down, you have a leak in the tank.

Fluidmaster’s new toilet tank flappers are now available with built-in Microban® antimicrobial product protection. One of the top reasons for flappers to wear out is breakdown due to bacteria inside a toilet tank. Microban® technology fights flapper breakdown due to bacteria, and only Fluidmaster offers flappers with this extra protection, now in our solid frame 2” versions (models 500, 501, 502 and 555C). In addition to Microban® protection, our solid frame design prevents the flapper from twisting, thereby creating a more consistent, superior seal. Our 501, 502 & 555C flappers carry a 5-year warranty and also continue to be resistant to chlorine and hard water.
Of course it’s very important to note that those bleach tablets you can drop in your toilet tank actually degrade your flapper and other critical toilet components and such use will void the warranty for the original toilet and/or replacement parts. For automatic toilet bowl cleaning to fight toilet stains and odors without harming your toilet, we recommend Fluidmaster’s Flush n’ Sparkle system.

Brian, a valued Fluidmaster customer, wrote to us on June 12, 2013...."I have recently contacted the support team for additional information. I am greatly pleased with the answers to the questions I had. Given enough time and trial and error I might have fiddled my way through the installation. With the tech support I was able to get the job done without having to test several settings. I am confident that the repair is properly taken care of . I have bought Korky flappers in the past but I can see that yours are superior."

Robert, a valued customer of Fluidmaster, wrote to us on May 28, 2013...."I bought the 402LGR. I am impresed with the watersaver feature. The person that designed this should be rich, the star of your company. Even if the flapper leaks the toilet wont run! Fixed both toilets today. Went for value not big hype. Chose yours I think it was a good choice."

One of our customers from Stonington, CT recently wrote to us saying...."This is a compliment. I bought a repair kit at Home Depot and rebuilt my Toilet. Everything went fine - good product and instructions. A few weeks later the toilet would not completely shut off when full. I had thrown all the paperwork away. I went on your website, easily found the guided instructions for diagnosing and repairing, found a small stone in the valve seal and repaired the unit. Your website provides great Customer Support. Thank you."

Ann from Oceanside in California, one of Fluidmaster's Valued Customer, wrote to us on March 25, 2013...."Hi Fluidmaster folks...Wanted to let you know I used your information on the Fluidmaster Fix-It Zone, Do-It-Yourself, and the Water Conservation guide from your website to fix the toilet that was constantly running: the valve needed to be cleared as per instructions on the website. I was thrilled that I could follow the instructions, pictures helped a lot, and the instructions actually worked! I also really appreciated the pdf's of the directions with the step-by-step pictures. Thank you. What makes this even more significant is that the workman was here for 7 hours trying to repair the leaky toilet, after replacing the inlet line and valve stop and it still leaked he eventually put in a new Fluidmaster Fill Valve and no more leaking! However, undoubtedly frustrated, he didn't wait around to see if the valves inside the toilet were working correctly. In the quiet of the night I could hear water continually running through the line and when I lifted the tank lid the water was over the float and running over the top of the flush valve tube. In the morning I followed your instructions to clear the Fill Valve and "Voilà!" a working toilet that fills and stops running! Thank you for the website and for the easy to find information, I will stick with Fluidmaster products as they work and are easy to use. I am looking forward to installing Fluidmaster's leak guard and water saving Duo Flush in the near future."

One of our valued Customer wrote to us on March 21, 2013...."This afternoon, I purchased your Universal Toilet Fill Valve 400A with the intention of replacing a fill valve that had gone bad. I dreaded the job as I am not handy with repairs of most anything. The installation instructions were clear and everything worked as it should – and no warning tones were set off even though I exceeded the 15 minute installation timeframe. I garnered some additional admiration from my wife of nearly 40 years, which is always good, but I wondered whether in cases such as this you email an official Certificate of Accomplishment. We have just the spot for it - on the wall above the toilet! Thank you for your consideration as I prepare mentally for the job of hanging the framed certificate."

Keeping your toilet bowl nice and clean is never a glamorous job, but someone has to do it. It’s a dreaded task that no one ever looks forward to completing. Finding the best toilet bowl cleaner is the perfect way to reduce the time and effort it takes to clean your toilet. Believe it or not, some toilet bowl cleaners are harsh enough to void the warranty of some toilets, due to the damage done to tank components. So, when looking for the best toilet bowl cleaners you need to look for cleaners that are safe on the toilet tank and septic systems but strong enough to really combat stains. Other features like the scent and ability to reduce or eliminate scrubbing are also taken into consideration. Read More
