ycanada: Thanks for the great free advice!
coololds85: Just fixed the leak today and assembled the bolts like you did. Thanks so
much. It actually stopped the leak and it worked. The only part I didn't
like was having to saw off the rusty bolts. But everything else worked like
a charm. I will keep watching for now on.
Paul Eliot: Excellent.
Rachel Duprey: thanks, great video and very helpful. next time move the carpet from away
from the toilet. :)
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!
Allan Omar: Thanks for the vid, was pretty helpful!
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.
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
Martina Evans: Thank you for the video God Bless
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.
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?
NerdishAzn: I got the same toilet and it has the same problem, does this happen to all
brands of toilets?
Snoop Robinson: Thank you this work to fix it myself... Thanks for sharing the
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.
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. ;-)
H2Raby: Thank you very much for the helpful video sir, I had the exact same problem
with the bolts getting old/rusted. Much appreciated!!
Arm Guy: My screws were all rusted, but got it done.... Thank you very much for the
hospitalcakewalk: Thank you so much guy!! Thus is exactly what happened today. I'm gonna fix
it! Thank you!!!
linx101: my turn to fix, mine looks exactly the same tank model too. Big THANKS for
this video. :)
Rosa Torres: hi my toilet is dripping water not to the floor but to the inside the
toilet bowel will this fix this problem
JasonFiske: Thank you for a great video!
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
Hustle Man: Great Video.....All done. Thanks for the Help!
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 ?
Kyle Berthiaume: Thanks. It's been about 20 years since I did this last. You video was a
great refresher/step by step guide.
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!
striker982: Hopefully the nuts will come off easily.
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
Christopher Webb: Thank you so much!!! Now I'm going to attempt it!
anish somani: Thank you..helped me a lot
S Lane: Exactly what I needed. Thank you very much!!!
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!
mslatinmix: Just what I needed. Thank u :)
akaredcrossbow: Thank you!!!!!!
Masday2: Outstanding video! Saved me hundreds!
Melissa Brooks: Thanks for this! I was fairly sure this was the problem and had an idea of
how to solve it, but this video makes me much more confident about starting
the process. Helpful tips and visuals. Glad you kept in the
trouble-shooting...that's real life!
Roy Brathwaite: Great video. It helped with my toilet repair and fixed the leaking
problem. Thank you!
telumears: Why not do some preventative maintenance while you have the tank off?
Replace all the tank inner workings that also look pretty corroded while
easy access with the tank off.
latafairam: Thanks for the video.
Animator of Lego: Thanks for saving me a lot of time on trying to figure this out on my own.
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!)
carolyn griffith: Thanks for your help......
terry brown: I can't tell you how much money and grief your vid and others have saved me
throughout the years. i feel like i should send you a check.
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mike Hunt: My city sent me a statement indicating that my water consumption is high.
They then included two blue strips for me to place in each toilet tank. I
placed one strip in two of my toile tanks and one of the toilet became
blue. My question is, will I need to replace my toilet or can I try to
solve my problem using the methods in this video?
jlmcgrot: Also, are the bolts a "standard size" for toilets (tank and floor)?
deemail100: Thank you so much from the 'Two Little Old Ladies' Construction Co.'... we
caused the leak ourselves, of course, when moving the toilet to replace the
bathroom floor at my house...so proud of ourselves for moving, laying tile,
re-seating new wax ring, new bolts, and then we turned on the water... but
one trip to youtube, one video (got lucky the first time), one trip to the
hardware store and we are back in business, high and dry! Thanks again...
jlmcgrot: what is the best way to determine where the leak is coming from (wax ring
or tank). My tank bolts are rusted, and I see rust stain down the back,
but I haven't seen any actual water running here. I also put a "blue"
cleaner tab in the tank, and have seen the blue staining around the base of
the toilet. I suppose I should just replace both and be done with it,
since I have to drain the tank either way.
Ronald Blocker: Guess what I'll be doing Saturday. Yay me!
