Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace Actuator Disc For Toilet Flush Valve:
This "actuator disc" is the equivalent of a flapper that works with either of two kinds of American Standard flush valves: one that takes a screw-on disc and one that takes a snap-on disc. To cope with screw-in units like mine, Ace includes a small threaded brass insert for the rubber disc; it is visible near the bottom of Ace's photo of the package. To remove an old screw-on disc from your toilet flush valve, turn off the water to the toilet tank and flush the toilet to drain the tank. Then turn the disc by hand while holding a 3/16" open-end wrench on the bolt that screws into the disc. The bolt has a square, not hexagonal, head. It is hard to see in the toilet tank because the flush valve is in the way, but you do not need to take the valve out of the tank. Just don't drop any parts into the drain after removing the disk. You can cover the drain with an old wash cloth to be safe.
Now that I have installed this particular model of disc, I can "snap off" (actually gently pry off) this disc when it is time to replace it, and no tools will be needed. Ace's disc appears to be better made than American Standard's because Ace's is slightly larger, more flexible, and more sturdily built. For that reason, I anticipate that it will work better and last longer than American Standard's. Lastly, the American Standard disc is a black rubber that, after many years of service, will put a black residue on your hands when you change it, so have paper towels ready to dry your hands.
Neither Home Depot nor Lowes carry an American Standard actuator disc, but it is a regularly stocked item at the Ace Hardware store in my area.
