A slightly silly question. To replace the silicone flapper you need to open two tiny screws. Which size (I assume Allen) screwdriver do I need?

Thanks in advance!

Both of the set screws (one for the chute, the other for the collar against the flapper) are 1.5mm hex (Allen). They are tiny - take care not to drop or lose them.

Where did you get the K30 flapper replacement?

The ditting distributer in Israel - probably doesn't help you :). I did manage to somehow lose the top metal part of the chute and am not sure how to get a new one (seems to work fine without it so I am not so worried).
