"Even thought I know nothing about toilets, I was able to find the part I needed with your instructions for finding the model number. I liked being able to click on the part number to see a photo of the part to confirm that it was what I needed."

Q. "How do I replace the seal for a Kohler canister-style flush valve?"
A. As with any flush valve replacement/repair, you'll need to ensure your tank is emptied of water before beginning. Unhook the trip lever from the chain on the side of the canister, and remove the refill tube from the stop on top of the canister. Grasp the stem inside the canister, then turn the stop counterclockwise to remove it. Lift the canister off of the valve base, remove the old seal and slip on the new seal. Replace the canister on the valve bottom, place the stop back on the stem and turn clockwise to tighten. Remember to clip your trip lever back to the canister and replace the refill tube.
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.
