Antiquated item no longer manufactured.  It was invented in Mexico by a priest with a level attached to a floating valve used as water level control device inside the toilet.  George Washington did not have the chance to use it as America did not have running water then.

Today it was replaced by an el cheapo styroform found in Fluid Master. The kit is NG as the valves are often defective. It leaks. Go back to the Ballcock design.

A ballcock (also balltap or float valve) is a mechanism or machine for filling water tanks, such as those found in flush toilets, while avoiding overflow and (in the event of low water pressure) backflow. The modern ballcock was invented by José Antonio de Alzate y Ramírez, a Mexican priest and scientist, who described the device in 1790 in the Gaceta de Literatura Méxicana.[1] It consists of a valve connected to a hollow sealed float by means of a lever, mounted near the top of the tank. The float is often ball-shaped, hence the name ballcock. The valve is connected to the incoming water supply, and is opened and closed by the lever which has the float mounted on the end. When the water level rises, the float rises with it; once it rises to a pre-set level, the mechanism forces the lever to close the valve and shut off the water flow. This is an example of negative feedback and of proportional control.
