Customer Question

I replaced the flushing mechanism yesterday. It works fine, BUT, about every 7 minutes, water gushes frpm the "J" Tube for about two seconds...could this be a flapper "issue"? I did not replace the flapper yesterday.
JA: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?
Customer: It started when I opened the water valve after installing the replacement unit...I pu the.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: replacement unit in because no water was coming thru the refill tube...after being vertain the refill tube was not blocked.
