Q. "The GP1138930 comes with some colored inserts. What are those for?"
A.Since the Kohler GP1138930 is a replacement for a variety of fill valves, it comes with a selection of color coded flow restrictors. To select the correct insert, check your old fill valve (the one you're replacing) and use the same color restrictor on your new GP1138930 fill valve. See example of the four included restrictors.
Q. "How do I adjust the water level for the 84499 conversion kit?"
A. As with any conversion or "will fit" replacement kit, you might need to make slight adjustments for the unit to function exactly like your original valve did. For the 84499 fill valve, you simply turn the adjustment screw counterclockwise to raise the water lever or clockwise to lower the water level. You may need to flush the toilet and keep turning either way until the water level in the tank matches the line on the flush valve overflow tube. If you're not sure where to find the adjustment screw or water level, view our handy parts diagram.
Q. "What are the most commonly replaced toilet parts?"
A. This depends on several factors; each time you use your toilet the trip lever, flapper, and fill valve are operated. You will find, however, that the flapper and fill valve are the parts most exposed to water and will be the first ones to wear out in most cases.
