Step 1: Removing Parts

Shut off water and flush water from toilet tank.  Remove tank from bowl  by remove all bolts holding toilet tank to the bowl.

Remove original valve from tank & all parts. To remove this style of overflow tube it worked better to insert pliers through the bottom  of the overflow tube an hold the nut on the outside while  turning the tube clockwise.  When removing flush handle  remember that flush handle nut is a reverse thread.

Step 3: Installing New Dual Flush Converter

Install dual flush converter onto the new flush valve (to replace Mansfield, canister style flush valve per kit instructions).

Step 6: Putting Everything Together

Now you can reattach the tank to the toilet and reconnect the water supply.  It is a good idea to check the supply tube though. You should get a new one if yours is cracked or broken such as this one.

I installed this but it doesn't have a strong suction when I flush. I need to usually flush twice. What can I do?
