Today I replaced the toilet flush valve. A couple of times the old one didn't close all the way and the water kept trickling into the bowl, filling it up. Luckily, I caught it both times before the thing overflowed onto the floor.
The job wasn't that bad. I shut off the water and held down the flush pedal to relieve the pressure. Then, removed the water line from the valve. Next, removed toilet and place it in the tub. Removed seal at base of toilet (new seal came with valve kit). Then removed old valve, installed new one and fitted new gasket in position.
Next, after cleaning up the floor, I positioned the toilet back over the flange bolts and re-attached the water line fitting. Then I carefully tightened down the flange bolt nuts, turned on the water and all was well. No more leakage. Should be good for another couple years.
The original lasted 2-1/2 years before it started leaking, so I'll probably throw a new one in every couple of years as regular preventative maintenance.
