      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Mansfield Toilet - Changing to flapper type flush

Recommended Posts

I have a Mansfield Toilet in my house that gives me trouble. The flush valve seal is constantly moving out of place and causing the toilet to run continously. I tried replacing the seal. While the new one stays in place, it does not seem to seal correctly and the toilet runs every 30 seconds or so. I have been researching on the internet and it seems that this is a common problem.

I would like to replace the system with a flapper type. Another one of the toilets in the house has been converted just after we bought the house by a plumber. I would like to save a few bucks and do it myself.

I consider myself fairly handy and really good at following directions. Has anyone done this? What is the exact procedure?

Thanking everyone in advance!

You have 2 both of your choices you have to remove the tank. You can replace the tank with another mansfield tank or you can rebuild the insides in which you have to remove the tank. Go buy a flush valve assembly with flapper, a new tank to bowl gasket, and a set of tank to bowl bolts (can't remember if Mansfield has 2 or 3 tank bolts) send me a private message and I can walk this thru you on the phone. Being a master plumber I can give you good advice, the job is simple and take less than 1/2 hour.

Thanks for the information. I went to the hardware store today and bought a replacement kit. I read through the directions and they seem pretty straight forward. I'm going to give it a whirl tomorrow morning as I am leaving shortly for a friend's B-day party.

I'll send you a message if I run into any issues.

Thanks again!
