REPAIRING FLUSHING MECHANISMS

Fixture control devices are used for flushing, holding water in a lavatory bowl, and draining waste. These devices-such as a water closet's tank flushing mechanism or lavatory/sink popup plug-get much usage and wear. When a fixture control device fails to operate properly or leaks, the malfunction is located and repaired. See figures 20, 21 and 22.
