More Mansfield Toilet Repair

9 May

Mansfield makes a low flush volume toilet that is very popular among condo and townhome builders. It has good flushing power for a low volume toilet but suffers from one  is design flaw. The gasket at the bottom of the flush valve is easily dislocated. The good news is that it is a cheap and easy fix. You don’t even need tools. To be honest I was completely stymied the first time I encountered a Mansfield. Before successfully locating replacement gaskets (now at all big box stores) I had to buy an entire replacement flush valve. I had so much trouble with several of them that I replaced the Mansfield valve with a standard flapper flush valve. But a handyman is just a guy who screws up enough times to finally get it right.
