my flush valve is 40-50 years old and the fill valve as well do they still make parts that fit?

Mark Parcheta says:

Best production values I have seen on a youtube video. Really professional and well done. This is how videos should be done. Plus the information was excellent. Thanks!!

Demetrios Dimitroulakos says:

Circle says:

Like I just commented on your older version of this video, I just replaced the fill valve on our running toilet. Cost about $20 and took 20-25 mins (I take my time).

Thank you very much, sir.

Hatim 13 says:

Yeah but this is where most plumbers make good money, some charge up to 150 to 200$ for that fix.

Harry Segal says:

Economically, with time and cost of parts, is it better to just replace everything in the tank at one time vs driving to the hardware store several times to change the parts each time and spending the time draining the tank and preparation in changing each individual part as it fails?

Sheila G says:

what great contenet very helpful!

Dave Goris says:

9 out of 10 times I had to cut them off.

working shlub says:

when changing a fill valve ALWAYS stick your hand over it when turning water back on….i had one that that i thought was clicked in shoot up like a rocket …even worse is they had that damn blue cleaner that made a mess all over the place..this was 12 years ago and still take caution..

Hever Morales says:

One can also use a 1/2'' nut driver & a socket wrench of 1/2'' just to snug it but not over tight it.

Jo Bo says:

Hey Roger, do you add a thin layer of faucet grease to help seal up any of the rubber gaskets? Thanks
