need help finding unique flush valve that goes into non-removable tank.

see pictures. its held by a screw and bracket making a seal. this is a bad system and it breaks like it did to another of my toilets which i was forced to repair with super glue. ive been told its an old style toilet but the house is 10 years old.

This one seems pretty close...it would help if you know the toilet manufacturer. It's often printed inside the tank lid.

2 inch single flush valve for one piece toilet

If that one's not right, start by searching for one piece toilet flush valve to get more options....

thank you! that seems the right kind but mine is 3". The height is a HUGE factor because the tanks are so short. also the toilet mfgr cannot be found anywhere!

Another thing is that they dont stay up by themselves and you have to hold them down. Is there supposed to be something floaty in that cylinder?

Post a picture of the whole toilet...good chance someone here will be able to identify it.

Usually that cylinder fills with water when down. When you flush, it flips up with the top above the water line. Water drains out the holes until it gets light enough and the weight of the bottom part flips it back down. Etc, etc.
