Did this video help you?

Claude Desaulniers: Hi. I think there is an error in the video. I don't think you should put a metal washer against the tank screws. The water will seep through the metal washer and the metal screw head to the threaded part of the screw and you will have a slow leak. It would be better to only use a rubber washer on the inside of the tank, or use a rubber washer first, then a metal one, then another rubber one.

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 out.

kpmadness: Why didn't you put the locking pliers on the bolt between the bowl and the tank?

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.  :(

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?

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 for posting.

Jolyn Matheny: I feel confident that I can do this after watching this video! Thank you!

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.

Engelhafen: Is that a crane toilet?!  I think I have that same tank!

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 myself.
I'm always happy to learn and do it myself.
Thanks again. 

Daniel Wong: Nice instructional video.  I'm going to head to the hardware store to get a gasket replacement kit right now.

Devon Smith: Thank you that really helped me with my project

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.

tudo cervera: great video sir,,, very helpful ,, I thank you ,  keep up the good work.

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. Much appreciated.
