12 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).

TROUBLESHOOTING

IF FILL VALVE SHUTS OFF BUT CONTINUES TO LEAK
SLOWLY, repeat Step 13.
IF FILL VALVE TURNS OFF AND ON DURING PERIODS OF
NON-USE, it is a signal you are wasting water because:
• The end of the refill tube is inserted into overflow pipe, below
water level in tank. Attach refill tube to overflow pipe using "S"
clip provided.
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).
IF FILL VALVE WON'T TURN ON OR SHUT OFF or REFILL OF
TANK WATER IS SLOW after valve has been in use for some
time, Fluidmaster Model 242 Replacement Seal may be needed.
IMPORTANT: Always clear
sand and rust from system.
• Make sure water supply is
off. Remove valve TOP by
lifting arm and rotating top
and arm 1/8 turn
counterclockwise, pressing
down slightly on cap.
• While holding a container
over the uncapped VALVE
to prevent splashing, turn
water supply on and off a
few times. Leave water
supply off.
• Replace TOP by engaging
lugs and rotating 1/8 turn
clockwise. MAKE CERTAIN
TIP IS TURNED TO THE
LOCKED POSITION. VALVE
MAY NOT TURN ON IF TOP
IS NOT FULLY TURNED TO
THE LOCKED POSITION.
