  • American Standard Flappers

    I ran into a couple A/S 1.6 toilets from the mid 90's in the last couple weeks.

    The one I saw today was a Heritage 2-piece. Parts diagram says it's # 738258-0070A

    Flappers are light teal with the float. They look like the coast flappers.

    The one I pulled out looked like it barely seated on the flush valve to begin with.

    The Korky 1.6 flapper worked fine, but I'm curious as to what others have done/used as a generic?

    I've seen the OEM flapper in the Hodes book, but $12 seems a little steep for a flapper.

    Probably was a Coast that had faded due to chlorine and time.
    I like the Coast Flush Guard with the changeable inserts that
    work on a variety of standard size flush valves. Also the
    Fluid Master adjustable and they also have a 3" universal
    adjustable for the newer W/C's.

      I pretty much just use fluidmasters on everything. I do carry one of the great big ones for the kohler cimarrons.
      This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.
