      I had a new 1.6 toilet installed. Believe it or not, this is my 3rd one. In 2 months, the flush valued
      is warped. why did this happen. thanks

      Who did the installation? A lot of installer hold the tank by the Douglas valve or the ball cock when lowering the tank to the bowl.

      You may also have a not so good brand you have been using.

      Crane toilets I never had a problem with with over 1,500 installed up to date.

      The Crane toilet cost around $59.00 for the 1.6 and it is worth looking into. I have installed these in both my offices and never had a problem. Good luck

      My parents had the same problem. They traced it to a bleach-based “2000 flushes” type product in the tank, and since they’ve stopped using the thing, the toilet’s been fine. BTW, they sent the damaged parts to the manufacturer and got their replacement cost reimbursed.

      If you’re not using one of those things, I would think the same problem might occur with heavily chlorinated water from the mains?
