A lot of people do not bother with this question. They think just because your toilet flapper is not a “regular” flapper, that it is “better” somehow. Of course, an “entry” toilet flapper costs over $250 but that’s a high price.
For me, I have a very old flapper with a built in bowl. That is one reason why it costs so much when using them in old houses. The other reason is due to the fact that the bowl is removable but you need a “seperate” bowl to put the flapper in while the rest is still in the shell.
The most important thing to remember with old toilet flappers is they are very old and must be cleaned and serviced (they lose their functionality after a number of uses, so cleaning or servicing is mandatory).
If you have one you prefer, you may ask your builder or electrician for their advice. Most will tell you “they will sell you a new one for $200 to $250 if you will pay for that cleaning and cleaning and more cleaning.” Of course they would be kidding themselves. But keep in mind that many old flappers come with lifetime warranties.
When we talk about “vintage” toilet flappers we mean those that had many repairs or restoration done. If they come with many years of service, they may still be in working condition and you may be able to fix them. Many older flappers come with an additional cleaning feature for “improving” the fit and finish of these items. But, of course, cleaning a toilet flapper is only a matter of “tried and true” techniques which should be performed by an experienced flapper. If your flapper does not seem to be working perfectly, the cleaning technique or cleaning technique may not be right.
Some people like to see their toilet flappers “worn in” so they see if they can still have them serviced after 40 years. But even when flappers are serviced these days, one of the problems many people with flapper-like accessories have is problems with them sliding into the toilet.
Toe shoes, flapper buttons, or buttons that “get caught” in toilet flapper bowls are usually common reasons for the failure of these accessories. For example, many flappers have button holes that are too small for button flaps to be removed to allow the flapper to go in. In these cases, you might want to consider using a larger flapper button
