!!! IMPORTANT !!!
With the exception of Control Stop Inlet, DO NOT use pipe sealant
or plumbing grease on any valve component or coupling!
PRIOR TO INSTALLATION
Before you install the GEM•2® Flushometer, be sure the items listed below
are installed. Also, refer to the rough-in diagram on Page 2.
• Closet/urinal fixture
• Drain line
• Water supply line
!!! IMPORTANT !!!
Never open Control Stop to where the flow from the valve
exceeds the flow capability of the fixture. In the event of a
valve failure, the fixture must be able to accommodate a
continuous flow from the valve.
Important:
• ALL PLUMBING SHOULD BE INSTALLED IN ACCORDANCE WITH
APPLICABLE CODES AND REGULATIONS.
• WATER SUPPLY LINES MUST BE SIZED TO PROVIDE AN ADEQUATE
VOLUME OF WATER FOR EACH FIXTURE.
• WHEN INSTALLING A FLUSHOMETER, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE
FLUSH MODEL MATCHES THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE PLUMBING
FIXTURE.
• FLUSH ALL WATER LINES PRIOR TO MAKING CONNECTIONS.
!!! IMPORTANT !!!
Protect the chrome or special finish of Gem•2 Flushometers — DO
NOT USE toothed tools to install or service these valves. Use a
Sloan A-50 Super-Wrench™, Sloan A-109 Plier Wrench or smooth
jawed spud wrench to secure all couplings. Also see “Care and
Cleaning” section of this manual.
The Sloan GEM•2® Flushometer is designed to operate with 10 to 100 psi
(69 to 689 kPa) of water pressure. THE MINIMUM PRESSURE REQUIRED
TO THE VALVE IS DETERMINED BY THE TYPE OF FIXTURE SELECTED.
Consult fixture manufacturer for minimum pressure requirements. Most Low
Consumption water closets (1.6 gpf/6.0 Lpf) require a minimum flowing
pressure of 25 psi (172 kPa).
!!! IMPORTANT !!!
This product contains mechanical and/or electrical components
that are subject to normal wear. These components should be
checked on a regular basis and replaced as needed to maintain
the valve’s performance.
TOOLS REQUIRED FOR INSTALLATION
If you have questions about how to install your Gem•2 Flushometer,
consult your local Sloan Representative or call Sloan Installation
Engineering Department at:
• Straight blade screwdriver
• Sloan A-50 Super-Wrench™, Sloan A-109 Plier Wrench or smooth
jawed spud wrench

!!! IMPORTANT !!!
The Sloan Gem•2 Flushometer is engineered for quiet operation.
Excessive water flow creates noise, while too little water flow may not
satisfy the needs of the fixture. Proper adjustment is made when
plumbing fixture is cleansed after each flush without splashing water out
from the lip AND a quiet flushing cycle is achieved.
Never open Control Stop to where the flow from the valve exceeds the
flow capability of the fixture. In the event of a valve failure, the fixture
must be able to accommodate a continuous flow from the valve.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
B. Line pressure has dropped and is not sufficient to force Relief Valve to seat.
Shut off all control stops until pressure has been restored, then open them
again.
C. 3.5 gpf Closet Piston has been used in a 1.0 or 1.5 gpf Urinal or on a 1.6 gpf
Toilet. Replace with proper Piston.
D. G-21 Main Seat is fouled with debris or is worn. Clean or replace G-21 Main
Seat.
1. Valve does not function (no flush).
A. Control Stop or Main Valve is Closed. Open Control Stop or Main Valve.
B. Handle Assembly is worn. Replace Sloan Handle Assembly (G-143-A).
C. Relief Valve is worn and sticking in UP position. Replace Piston.
2. Volume of water is not sufficient to siphon fixture.
A. Control Stop not open enough. Adjust Control Stop for desired delivery of
water.
B. Urinal Piston Parts inside a Closet Flushometer. Replace Piston Parts with
proper Closet Piston.
C. Low Consumption Flushometer installed on a non-Low Consumption fixture.
Replace with proper Piston Kit.
D. Inadequate volume or pressure at supply. Increase water pressure or supply
(flow) to Flushometer. Consult Factory for assistance.
5. Leaking at Handle Assembly.
A. The B-39 Seal is worn or deteriorated. Install new B-39 Seal. NOTE: The B-39
Seal will easily slide onto the Bushing if it is wet.
B. Handle gasket has been omitted. Replace Sloan Handle Assembly (G-143-A).
C. Valve Handle Bushing is worn. Replace Sloan Handle Assembly (G-143-A).
Refer to the GEM•2 Flushometer Maintenance Guide for additional
Troubleshooting and Repair Part information.
3. Length of flush is too short (Short Flushing) or Flushometer
closes off immediately.
A. Piston Assembly is not hand-tight. Screw the assembly hand-tight.
B. Enlarged Bypass orifice from corrosion or damage. Install NEW Inside Piston
Kit to correct problem and update Flushometer.
C. Urinal Piston in Closet Flushometer. Replace Piston with proper Closet Piston.
D. Low Consumption Piston installed in non-Low Consumption fixture. Replace
Piston with proper Closet Piston.
E. Handle Assembly is worn. Replace Sloan Handle Assembly (G-143-A).

CARE AND CLEANING OF CHROME AND SPECIAL
FINISHES
4. Length of flush is too long (Long Flushing) or fails to close off.
DO NOT use abrasive or chemical cleaners (including chlorine bleach) to
clean Flushometers that may dull the luster and attack the chrome or special
decorative finishes. Use ONLY mild soap and water, then wipe dry with clean
cloth or towel.
While cleaning the bathroom tile, protect the Flushometer from any
splattering of cleaner. Acids and cleaning fluids will discolor or remove
chrome plating.
A. Piston is not seating properly or Bypass orifice is clogged because of foreign
material, or Bypass orifice is closed by an invisible gelatinous film from
“over-treated” water.
Disassemble the working parts and wash thoroughly. NOTE: SIZE OF THE
ORIFICE IN THE BYPASS IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE FOR THE PROPER
METERING OF WATER INTO THE UPPER CHAMBER OF THE FLUSHOMETER.
DO NOT ENLARGE OR DAMAGE THIS ORIFICE. REPLACE PISTON IF
CLEANING DOES NOT CORRECT PROBLEM.
