    What is a Flapper?
    A flapper is the flexible seal that controls the water flow between the toilet tank and bowl. When the toilet is flushed the flapper is lifted by the flush handle and chain, water then drains from the tank to the bowl. Once all of the water has drained from the tank the flapper valve closes and the tank refills.

    Why Do Flappers Deteriorate?
    The reason why flappers leak is that they are made of rubber. When rubber is immersed in water, over time it will corrode. A flapper will corrode more quickly if it is exposed to hard water or chlorine cleaning pucks. Usually a flapper will last two-to-three years before it begins to seep, at an initial rate of around 100,000 litres a year. As the flapper ages the water leaked begins to gradually increase.

    Water Flushed Down the Drain:

    • Households with standard 13L toilets flush on average 21,350 litres per person, per year
    • Households with 6L toilets flush on average 9,860 litres per person, per year
    • Households with Niagara Flapperless 4.8L toilets flush on average 7,880 litres per person, per year

    Leaking Toilets: The Largest Source of Household Water Waste

    • Most toilet leaks, with time, occur at the flapper valve
    • Many flappers will start to leak within 3 years - in less than one year in some areas of hard water or with use of chlorine-cleansing pucks

    • A small toilet leak = 100,000 litres of water per year
    • A moderate leak = 200,000 litres per year.
      This is equivalent to filling a large in-ground swimming pool with wasted water
    • A large leak = 400,000 litres per year
