Q. "What's the difference between a 'flush' valve and a 'flushometer' valve?"
A. A flushometer is a metering valve for water closets (aka: toilets) and urinals. A flush valve is a component in a tank toilet.
Q. "How does a Sloan valve operate?"
A. A Sloan valves works by equalizing pressure in the chambers over and under the diaphragm. Basically, the water will run until the top chamber is filled. This is the 'flow timing;' you can adjust the timing with a 'flow-ring.' A flow-ring is the plastic ring directly under the diaphragm. Sloan and Zurn both make flow rings in 1.0, 1.6, 3.5 and 4.5 gallons per flush designations.
