Ravneet Grewal: Helped me! It fixed my leak from the bolts, but now I have a leak in the
tank to bowl washer when I flush. I will have to unbolt and replace the
washer. Now I see the importance of the thicker washer you showed. Any idea
which brand is that? Is it sort of universal?
kpmadness: Why didn't you put the locking pliers on the bolt between the bowl and the
blueticecho: In 40 years of doing this I've never, never place nuts on the bottom of the
tank. This makes it almost impossible for the next person to get the bolts
Shellie .: We just got the kit and made the changes. You made it seem so easy, and it
was. However, we can't stop it from leaking....just like it did (from
the screws and washers at the bottom leaking on the floor) as it did
before. Both were rusty....one unscrewed, and the other needed the
hacksaw. Any ideas how we can stop both from leaking. They're done up
very tight. I pushed down as my husband reattached the tank to the bowl.
Porcelain isn't cracked. :(
Gayle Parker: Thanks for this great video! I accepted the challenge and completely
replaced all parts in the tank with a brand new all-in-one kit. I was
afraid to buy the wrong parts at the local hardware store so I brought my
tank with me. One tip - my toilet has a flush handle on the side of the
tank. My kit came with a front flush handle so I improvised and kept my old
side flush handle assembly. I had to bend the chain rod to hover above the
flap. It worked perfectly. No more leaky tank and no more running toilet.
The iron bolts in my tank were nearly disintegrated like yours.. I could
not unscrew them so I hammered a flat head screw driver down on the bolt
inside the tank and knocked them out easily.
Shaheen Shahzad: So how long did it take to cut the bolts with the heck saw, I gave up, will
try to cut tomorrow again
Dean Christensen: Very well explained. I'm pretty confident I can repair my own now. Thanks
Tkrtomm: Thanks for making this video.
I also had to use a hacksaw to remove the left screw. Everything was fine
once I got the screw out.
You literally saved me money by showing me how to replace the gasket
I'm always happy to learn and do it myself.
Jolyn Matheny: I feel confident that I can do this after watching this video! Thank you!
Daniel Wong: Nice instructional video. I'm going to head to the hardware store to get a
gasket replacement kit right now.
Engelhafen: Is that a crane toilet?! I think I have that same tank!
mickavellian: Woah .. I have the same problem and gave YouTube a try . The most amazing
thing is that a plumber (the most honest plumber in the world) can find a
true nightmare that will throw any estimates out the window. Thanks for the
tutorial and thanks for the lesson on plumbing ethics and client
Devon Smith: Thank you that really helped me with my project
tudo cervera: great video sir,,, very helpful ,, I thank you , keep up the good work.
Fernando Hernandez: God I love basic repair videos like this on Youtube. I go from "oh my god
I'm going to have to call a plumber and spend $150" to "pfft, $10 at
hardware store will fix that" in like 7min flat. You're the man!
Engelhafen: Yeah I had to cut my tank bolts off. I'm wondering if putting silicone on
those bolts if that will prevent that rusting.
Rachel Duprey: thanks, great video and very helpful. next time move the carpet from away
from the toilet. :)
Pasquale Bianculli: Thanks so much for this vid. It helped me to repair a very similar leak.
Following you step ny step gave me much confidence to tackle this project.
Allan Omar: Thanks for the vid, was pretty helpful!
Steve Vandeman: My toilet was dripping. sometimes it would leak a couple drops per day,
sometimes a pint per day. After taking it apart I noticed the gasket was
the same time you said you prefer. I went to Lowes and couldnt find that
style. All were from the same brand, and said which brand of toilet they
were for. However none looked like the one you like (which happened to be
the old one the toilet had in it). I tried a few different ones and every
time water would gush out when I flushed the toilet. Finally I put back the
old gasket and no more leaks. I guess it was the bolt kit that needed to be
replaced. But look at Lowes, none of them are that style.
Jacob Horne: I replaced my bolts and still a leak? Maybe it's the gaskets for the tubes
under the tank I can't see?
alan4sure: Isn't this typical plumbing repair. One little thing leads to another, that
shut-off valve might leak now, and the 30 minute job becomes 4 hours.
withtheheyheyithurts: Because of you, you wonderful man, I can now crap without getting my feet
wet. Thank you sooo much for the help, I feel like ive learned a new and
Tina Ewest: Thank you for the video God Bless
Ballenxj: Thank you! I'm usually pretty handy, but watching your video gave me the
heads up I needed so I bought the kit (thick gasket) and hack saw blade
before I began.
The job was completed flawlessly, no more leak! YEA!
PS, I never needed the hack saw blade, but I know that if I didn't get it,
I would have needed it. Better safe than sorry. ;-)
Paul Eliot: Excellent.
Snoop Robinson: Thank you this work to fix it myself... Thanks for sharing the
H2Raby: Thank you very much for the helpful video sir, I had the exact same problem
with the bolts getting old/rusted. Much appreciated!!
Kyle Berthiaume: Thanks. It's been about 20 years since I did this last. You video was a
great refresher/step by step guide.
hospitalcakewalk: Thank you so much guy!! Thus is exactly what happened today. I'm gonna fix
it! Thank you!!!
Arm Guy: My screws were all rusted, but got it done.... Thank you very much for the
NerdishAzn: I got the same toilet and it has the same problem, does this happen to all
brands of toilets?
linx101: my turn to fix, mine looks exactly the same tank model too. Big THANKS for
this video. :)
striker982: Hopefully the nuts will come off easily.
Hustle Man: Great Video.....All done. Thanks for the Help!
JasonFiske: Thank you for a great video!
ssmouse77: Video & info well done. Thank you for these instructions.
spontos26532: Thank you for this video.... i was able to fix the problem myself.....
:D... crazy thing tho, my bathroom is set up the exact same way lol.....
thank you again
Jürgen Koks: if im too lazy to fix the toilet and i want it fixed only temporarly
anyway. Could i just use crazy glue to fix the dripping part ?
SC341USMC: Just used your video to replace my tank gasket and bolts/bolt gaskets. Had
a leak, did this first before resorting to replacing wax ring underneath.
Thanks for the quick, easy to follow, good paced video. It had clear
instructions and cut out all of the gab. I really appreciate you taking
the time to show folks like me how to do it ourselves.
Keep it up!
Sir Jammer: Tip; before connecting the supply line to the take. While you have the take
off, wrap some plumbers tape around the inlet of the Fill Valve. Just
something I watched my pappy do...so I do it to. Never had a leak!
Roy Brathwaite: Great video. It helped with my toilet repair and fixed the leaking
problem. Thank you!
Rosa Torres: hi my toilet is dripping water not to the floor but to the inside the
toilet bowel will this fix this problem
anish somani: Thank you..helped me a lot
Christopher Webb: Thank you so much!!! Now I'm going to attempt it!
NVanHiker: Mike Hunt - it's most likely a flapper valve that needs replacing - a six
dollar job. (And of course, Youtube will no doubt have lots of video!)
Kelli Leavens: WHO NEEDS A MAN,,,WHEN THERE'S...YOUTUBE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had called and sent videos to my landlord to fix this. Three times he
came to try and fix this.......I just did it myself. And watching this
video, the rubber washers were in the wrong place. Although, it is leaking
on the right side. Which as I can see, it needs a new rubber washer on the
inside of the tank. I'll be fixing it later.
Happy 4th of July!!!!!!!!!!!!!
S Lane: Exactly what I needed. Thank you very much!!!
mslatinmix: Just what I needed. Thank u :)
