          Has anyone mentioned that when you buy a OEM Kohler Flapper (the big round one for the old one-piece toilets) it now comes with a nice orange sticker that says if you use this on the flush valve with the round overflow tube (the one it was originally intended for) that you risk flooding the house?
          It tells you to call customer service for more info. When you do they tell you to replace the round flush valve with the square one.

              The government is still humming isn't it.
              But, now that I think about it, I did pay a little less. Maybe that's why they are scrapping the missile defense in E. Europe.

                  the flapper only says because the overflow changed from the circular to the rectangular... just to insure you install the correct one. you don't really need to change the entire flush valve.

                      I am installing a Kohler body spray/shower set up right now and it sucks. The stupid cheese wedge shower head is not in stock, I call the supply house for the cut sheets and they fax them over and there is no rough in info on the rough in sheet. Thanks for nothing, you cheddarheaded morons!

                        Let me quote from the warning sticker," Severe water damage may result if this flapper is used with a one piece low profile toilet. If your flush valve looks like this (picture) call 800.4.kohler to obtain replacement parts for this product."
                        Well, the picture is about the size of a nickel and poor contrast. So I call customer service which is a pain because my blackberry letters don't match up with the #'s in KOHLER (Why can't they just put the fricking phone # too?) and the customer service lady says they recommend REPLACING THE FLUSH VALVE if mine has a round overflow tube even though this is the flapper they have sold for years (and still do) to use on the round tubed flush valve.
                        So, you're telling me I don't REALLY need to change the entire flush valve. What do I REALLY need to do?

                          I just installed my 1st kohlar lav faucet in many years. It was home owner supplied . The chrome looked great. The install was so easy, the faucet was tightened from the top. The best for me was the nut that pushes up on the mac washer on the drain assembly was about a 1/2" thick so my channel locks would not slip. Any how I dislike serviceing kohlar because parts are hard to come by. Now the only place selling Kohlar in Holland Mi. is shutting down, So it will be that much harder.

                          True fact 4 plumbing supply house in Holland Mi. 3 have a working toilet seat bidet on at least 1 toilet in there shops. the one that doesn't is shutting down.

                            I agree. They're body sprays were definitely not designed by or for us plumbers. As for rough in info, I tried looking up K-8030 on their website and downloaded the specification sheet pdf. It referred me to the installation guide which is nowhere to be found. You're right. They are a bunch of "cheeseheads".
