I must have bad luck with toilets. In the old house I replaced the internals of 2 and the new house I'm going to need to do it again. The ones with the big float thing seem like they have more issues than the new designs.

The first time I swapped it out it took me like an hour. I can hopefully do it in 20 minutes now. Has anyone else changed out the internals due to running toilet, hard to flush, etc?

I did all 3 toilets in my house. They kept letting water run. I bought 2 2 packs and went and did my aunts also which was having troubles. Very fast and easy to do.

We only have 2 toilets in our house and the one that runs is the one with the newer internals system.

I should probably change out one of ours. The chain sometimes gets stuck under the rubber stopper part and lets a little bit of water continue to run. It's easy enough to just jiggle the handle to make sure it isn't stuck, but would be nice to not have to do that.

Peel and stick. No need to take off the tank. We will see how it goes. Image

I bought the wrong thing. Luckily I only needed to replace the left thing, not the flap. I wouldn't have had to take the tank off regardless since I left the flapper alone

Also showing off my toilet bowl cleaners I have on all of the tanks. $7 at Menards. Buy the hot tub tablets to save all the money

I replaced our downstairs one recently but not with the fancy new style.

I like the effects but it does kind of smell like a pool in the bathroom after flushing

Yeah still a float. We are planning on replacing the toilets at some point so no sense spending more than a few bucks replacing it

97% of the time I don't notice this. I think I swear by these things. Been in the house over a month now and there has been no grime to scrub at all.
