STEP 1: If your flapper is adjustable, adjust it to flush less water. With a float style flapper, this is accomplished by raising the float. With an adjustable cone style flapper, this is accomplished by turning the dail on the flapper to open up larger holes - this will allow the flapper to closer quicker and avoid double flushes. If your flapper is not adjustable, you have an incorrect flapper for your tank and it needs to be replaced.

STEP 2: The first step is to shut off the water supply to your toilet. 

STEP 3: Next, flush your toilet to drain the excess water and the remove the old flapper.

STEP 4: Install your Korky flapper by attaching the flapper ears to the tabs of the flush valve. This may vary slightly depending on the Korky flapper model you have. Still need to find a new flapper? Start your search here. 

STEP 5: Attach the flapper chain to the flush lever. Making sure the flapper chain is going as straight up and down as possible from the flush lever and has minimal slack. If the chain has excess slack or is too tight, the flapper may not perform adequately. 

STEP 6: Turn the water supply back on to complete you installation.
