No more water torture! Thank you Waxman!
By NJ Fit Family
* Waxman flapper
I'm not going to lie...I don't know a thing when it comes to fixing toilets. I'm quite handy when it comes to fixing stuff, however, toilets are not my forte! Fortunate enough for me, my hubby is my Mr. Fix It!
My toilet water was running nonstop and driving me up a wall. Although some may find the sound of running water soothing and relaxing, I found it quite stressful and annoying. It got so bad, I would turn the valve off just to stop hearing the annoying sound of running water. Problem is, you can't flush the toilet when the valve is shut off! So, what is one to do??? One shall order the Waxman Adjustable Quick Shut Off Perfect Flush Anti-Siphon Toilet Fill Valve and Craft Waxman Seal Tight Toilet Flapper Replacement!!!
I supervised by husband as he diligently installed the valve. Once the old valve was removed, installation of the new one barely took 10 minutes. (Mind you, he took a water break! Hard to find good help these days ;))
Removal and installation didn't require many tools. He used a pair of pliers, a wrench and a flat head screwdriver. He was able to reuse the connecting hose end cap. Once the new fill valve was installed, the water filled up very quickly. He was able to adjust the water level to customize the flush simply by turning a screw. The valve also has a filter screen on the water line connection which help prevent clogging. This is a huge plus if you have any sediment in the water. He simply popped off the old flapper and replaced it with the Craft Waxman Seal Tight Toilet Flapper. Simple as that!
*Note: he also used the Waxman Adjustable Quick Shut Off Perfect Flush Anti-Siphon Toilet Fill Valve

The installation was so quick and easy, I was able to give the hubby more things to do! Overall, I'm quite happy with this fill valve. No more running water! Now fellas, remember this...happy wife, happy life =)
I was fortunate enough to receive the Craft Waxman Seal Tight Toilet Flapper Replacement at a discounted rate in exchange for an unbiased honest review. However, this doesn't affect my five star rating for it.
If at any time I find the product does not live up to the initial review, I will update my review to reflect my findings.
I rely heavily on reviews before buying products so I personally like to be honest when reviewing items myself! I found this fill valve to be of excellent quality and would recommend it to family and friends.

Excellent! And a great value
By Greg J. Lovern
When I tried to reinstall my old orange Fluidmaster flapper after removing it temporarily, I broke one of the tiny hard plastic tabs that hold it down over the valve's mounting ears.
I picked up this blue Plumb Craft flapper for three dollars. I was a little concerned that I would get what I paid for (which would have been junk) but I was very pleased to find that it works great! It has soft, flexible plastic holes that go over the valve's mounting ears -- impossible to break! And, it is softer plastic than the old Fluidmaster, so maybe makes a better seal. The toilet does now fill up quieter and faster with no leaking water sound, but to be fair the old Fluidmaster had some buildup on it that I'm guessing prevented a perfect seal until enough water pressure pressed it down to make a good seal.
I recommend this flapper. It's very cheap but works great.
(One minor quibble. The photo here shows a flapper seal gasket in addition to the flapper. The package does not actually include a flapper seal gasket.)

It's ok. It works.
We have a toilet that runs sometimes after being flushed (to be more exact when my wife flushes it). Not sure why it only happens when "some people" flush it but it drives me CRAZY hearing that flushing sound over and over again.
Anyway, it's a simple fix to replace the flapper, and since I have with this one I am happy to say the flushing noises only happen when someone actually flushes and not over and over again afterwards.
So the main Pro of this flapper is it works!
I am by no means an expert on flappers nor have I held or seen many of them other than the ones I replaced and the new ones I installed. I had the same problem with two toilets so there were 4 flappers I have some experience with.
The flappers which I replaced were made of studier and what seemed to be better quality.
This flapper is made of a very squishy flexible rubber. I could squish the whole thing in my hand if I wanted without breaking it. Not sure what the benefit of this design is and I would hate to list it as a Con if it was done on purpose to make sure a solid seal is provided when the water suction pulls it down over the drain.
The one thing I did not like at all was the plastic pull chain. My kids toys come with better plastic chains. I installed everything as is so we'll see if I come back and take some stars away for not lasting in the long run. For now all I can say is it works.
I did save the old flappers just incase because they did not seem to have any holes or cracks. Not exactly sure why they were running although I suspect maybe the pull chain was hooked on too long and getting caught between the flapper and the drain but I am not certain.
In any case, my review can only speak to first impressions as I have only had it installed for a week.
It works when first installed and it was easy to install. It is adaptable to pretty much any type of toilet set up (with ears or no ears).
I received this flapper at a discounted price in return for my honest review.
