Use the Search Box

For example, hover over Flushometers, then Sensor Flushometer Parts, then click on G2 Parts. There in that section you will find a part labelled ‘Electronic Module G2 - Urinal, which is the part you are looking for.
Search by Repair Part Type
If you don’t know the name of the model fixture the repair part is for, or that is simply not relevant for the part(s) you need to find, then you can also search by part type. Hover over Repair Parts, then hover over Repair Parts by Type. The following menu will pop up that lets you view parts by type:

Sloan Repair Parts FAQs
Q: How do I identify a Sloan flush valve?
A: You can identify a Sloan flushometer a couple different ways. On the flush valve, there is an identification sticker on the bottom backside of the valve body. On OEM Sloan repair parts, the model number will also be engraved in the vacuum breaker, cap, and cover as well.
Q: What are the most common problems Sloan solenoids have?
A: Erratic valve noises, partially closed valves, or the valve will not open. Learn more about these common solenoid issues in our Sloan solenoid troubleshooting article.
Q: How long should Sloan repair parts last?
A: This will depend on a few factors - the type of part it is, what model flushometer it is used for, and installation location factors like water quality, if vandalism occurs, proper installation, and proper part replacement. However, in broad terms, Sloan flush valves and Sloan repair parts have a longer life expectancy than other industry units and parts. Sloan repair parts are estimated to last between one to five years longer than similar parts manufactured by other vendors.
Q: I need help troubleshooting my Sloan faucet. Where should I go?
A: Identify which Sloan faucet model you have, then find that model in our Sloan faucet troubleshooting guides. Review the troubleshooting Q&A underneath the parts breakdown for answers to specific troubleshooting issues related to that faucet model. After that, use our photographic parts breakdown to identify the parts you need to make your repairs.
Q: How do I know which vacuum breaker size to order for my flush valve?
A: Most vacuum breakers are 9-inches in length, unless you are ordering a vacuum breaker for a bedpan washer assembly, then you need a longer one. Closet vacuum breakers are 1-1/2 inch in diameter and urinal vacuum breakers are tapered and come in three different sizes, the most common tapers from 1-½ inch where the vacuum breaker sits in the tube down to ¾-inch.
Q: What’s the difference between dual-filtered and single filtered diaphragm kits?
A: Sloan came out with Permex diaphragm assemblies in 1998. Dual-filtered diaphragms feature a dual-filtered bypass, meaning that instead of only one bypass hole for water to filter through, there are two. This lessens the strain on the bypass and makes clogging less likely. These improvements resulted in diaphragm assemblies that last up to 4 times longer than the old rubber diaphragms.
Q: What’s the difference between old and new Sloan vacuum breaker repair kits?
A: New style vacuum breaker repair kits are constructed of Permex – a durable synthetic rubber that can last up to four times longer than regular rubber. The specially designed tri-wing shape is now recessed up into the rubber sleeve. They have a straight sleeve shape, whereas the old-style rubber inserts had a duck-bill shape. Modern low-flow toilets and urinals create more back-pressure than older fixtures. This pressure is what causes most vacuum breaker leaks. Old style vacuum breakers are not designed to handle the back-pressure of newer low-flow fixtures. The careful design of the shape of the new-style vacuum breakers is what helps stop increased back pressure from causing leaks in low-flow units.
Q: How do I adjust the control stop on my flushometer?
A: Control stops are fairly easy to adjust. Read the directions in our Control Stop Guide to learn how to adjust a control stop in a flushometer.
