Did this video help you?

Patrick Petty: I just did it with your help, thank you very much, kind sir!

yesiownfrodo: This is the BEST video I have seen on fixing this problem. GREAT job.

Ole Possum: I tried the tank bolts like you show it, they both leaked. I tried it with (descending) bolt head, rubber washer, tank, rubber washer, metal washer, nut, toilet base, metal washer, nut. That worked fine. The bolt head, metal washer, then rubber washer setup you use does seem to cause leakage.

tweak114: thanks for the hacksaw idea

Jeanine Scheib: Thank you for the lesson..I do appreciate you..now I don't have to ask or call out anyone for help. thank you

s roniii: why do plumbers install bolts on all parts of a toilet where necessary that are not brass -both my toilets have problems because of this

TezzyFresh: Your tutorial is very helpful. Fixed my leak with no issues! Thanks

Grannieannie F: Thanks for the video. I don't remember you mentioning the name of the kit. Would the Danco Toilet Tank to Bowl Kit be what you used?

Joe Schmoe: I don't understand how you put the bolts on without putting tank screws through the holes first.

BallBeerQue27: Great video thanks!

Antonio Flores-Lobos: Muchas Gracias ... it was very helpful.

Tom Olofsson: Nice work.

ZeXcell: yum

James Ahrens: great diy vid. clear language, complete how-to. thanks

Kevin Dahlquist: Thanks for the video- I just replaced my tank and it seems to be holding up well. Now that I'm done, I took a minute to review this again and noticed that the 3 brass bolts each are only secured by one fastener that goes all the way through. This was the hardware arrangement that it was configured in when I took it off so I didn't think twice about reinstalling it that way. In your case though I see that a bolt exists in between the tank and the bowl and another on the underside of the bowl. Should I worry?

Rogelio Hernandez: Man, Is it a law of the universe that one of the nuts cones right off and the other one makes you remember swear words you had forgotten?
I used my dremel to cut the bolt.

dap: My only concern with your addition of the extra washer is whether that will make it more prone to loosening? And then consequently leaking?

I've done this fix about 12-15 times in my life, maybe more. Yesterday the wing nuts were loose after a few hours, and tightening them up cracked the tank. That was definitely a first.
Time for a new toilet. The old one was the last original in the house from 1969, so I guess it had a pretty good life.
