  • 200A slow death

    I put a 200A in my own toilet in 1984 when i was a apprentice
    I'm still not going to change it yet, just to see how long it goes , right now it just has a delay after the flush but it will fill it up..dont want to change the seal knowing the age of the weakened plastic once touched

    You are right about the plastic. I've had more than one break (spontaneously) at the base and shoot the top of the valve up like a missile to the ceiling as soon as the lid was removed. Unless you have someone at home all the time I wouldn't risk it, personally. Not to mention the blue water I've seen coming out of the faucets when those things siphon. Yuk.

      wasn't the 200 a non code/ non anti siphon ballcock?

      was that the one with the wire clip to hold on the cap?

        It was the old orange one
        im sure it is against all codes we have now
        You adjust the level with a clip like you would find on a pop up drain
