Thanks,

Toilet bowl cleaners that remove mineral stains are acid based. If a vinegar soak (a cup or two) and a little scrubbing don't work, there's a product called The Works that is a stronger acid.

Red B Gone is great stuff. Google it and you will find a place to buy it on line. I get it for free from the town since Foxborough has iron and magnesium issues in their wells and lines, so they give it to residents for free that request it.

If the parts are cleaned, they might not work anymore, replace the parts.

 

:th: It makes little sense to clean and put the old parts back in, $15 gets you all new innards.

Correct, one of the Deckhands many jobs in life was a plumber. Use a Fluid Master fill valve and take the flapper to the store and match it as perfectly as you can. Leave the chain just a tad slack. The handle if "scrubbed" or cleaned, will be weekend - replace it. Remember, the handle 'nut' goes on backward to the "righty-tighty" thing.

 

Also, while your at it, put new tank bolts on. The gaskets in them weaken over time. When you are done, remember that cold water in a warm toilet will "sweat" a few drops of water should be expected.
