CARE AND CLEANING
When cleaning your toilet, wash it with mild, soapy water, rinse thoroughly with clear water and dry with a soft cloth. Avoid detergents,
disinfectants, or cleaning products in aerosol cans. NEVER use abrasive scouring powders or abrasive pads on your toilet seat. Some
bathroom chemicals and cosmetics may damage the seat's finish.
!
WARNING: Do not use in-tank cleaners. Products containing chlorine (calcium hypochlorite) can seriously damage fittings in the
tank. This damage can cause leakage and property damage.
American Standard shall not be responsible or liable for any tank fitting damage caused by the use of cleaners containing
chlorine (calcium hypochlorite).

IF FILL VALVE SHUTS OFF BUT CONTINUES TO LEAK
SLOWLY, repeat Step 12.
IF FILL VALVE TURNS OFF AND ON DURING PERIODS OF
NON-USE, it is a signal you are wasting water because:

water level in tank. Attach refill tube to overflow pipe using "S"
clip provided.
LIFT ARM
FIRST
LIFT ARM
FIRST
• The flush valve is leaking because it's worn, dirty or misaligned
with tank ball or flapper (replace with a new flapper).

OF TANK WATER IS SLOW after valve has been in use for
some time, Fluidmaster Model 242 Replacement Seal may be
needed.

lugs and rotating 1/8 turn
clockwise. MAKE CERTAIN
TIP IS TURNED TO THE
