Sloan Urinal flush valve

(1/2) > >>

Kilroy:
I have a urinal that will not stop flushing on its own.  Have replaced every part of the Sloan flush valve separately and it has not helped.  Any ideas?

JWWebster:
By-pass orifice in diaphragm is clogged with dirt or debris, or By-pass is clogged by an invisible gelatinous film due to "over-treated" water. Remove Flex Tube Diaphragm and wash under running water.

JWWebster:
Note: Size of orifice in the By-pass is of utmost importance for the proper metering of water by the valve. DO NOT ENLARGE OR DAMAGE THIS ORIFICE. Replace Flex Tube Diaphragm if cleaning does not correct the problem.

JWWebster:
Dirt or debris fouling Stem or Flex Tube Diaphragm. Remove Flex Tube Diaphragm and wash under running water.

JWWebster:
Check it out from the web and hell yeah I ain't a plumber:
