Types of Toilet Flush Valves
Toilet flush valves come in the following formats: standard, 3-inch, 4-inch, tower-style (also called canister-style), and dual flush valves.
Standard Valve 
A standard toilet flush valve is 2 inches in size and works with most low-flow toilets and older toilet models. The most commonly found type in residential homes, it is the least expensive and most frequently purchased toilet flush valve.
This style of toilet flush valve consists of a hinged flapper that attaches directly to the base of the overflow tube and also attaches with a chain to the top of the overflow tube. The flapper sits in the seat of the flush valve at the bottom of the toilet to stop water from flowing through to the toilet bowl. The seat of the flush valve has a large plastic BOLT that goes through the hole in the tank bottom to fasten the flush valve to the tank with a large plastic BOLT that must be secured from the underside of the tank.

BOLT MADE ALL CAPS TO ADD EMPHASIS!



The last line should read --
The seat of the flush valve has a large plastic BOLT that goes through the hole in the tank bottom to fasten the flush valve to the tank with a large plastic NUT that must be secured from the underside of the tank.
