Are all toilet flappers the same size?
Likewise, are toilet flappers universal?
A universal sized toilet flapper used to be the norm, but today toilet flappers can range anywhere from 2″ to 4″ in size. The size of the flapper that your toilet uses usually is determined by a couple of factors.
Keeping this in view, do I need a float on my toilet flapper?
The flapper should start to rise before the handle is halfway down. Move the float, if there is one, closer to the flapper. You may have to unhook the chain to do this. The float is a feature of water-saving flappers, and it works best if it's about 1 inch from the flapper.
There's the sound of trickling water in the toilet. The toilet starts refilling all by itself. This may be caused by a leaking flush valve, allowing water to pass through the tank into the bowl. If the flush valve leaks the flapper must be replaced and the seat it sits on cleaned thoroughly.
