Did this video help you?

Joe Bergs: great video. I turn the main water off at the house unless there has been a newer ball valve shutoff installed. those old shutoff sometimes leak

XIANG HUANG: Thanks for the instruction video. Nice job. It will be my weekend project now to fix the leaking tank in our bathroom LOL.

Jacana Productions: Thanks for the video, it seems like with toilets being so cheap now a days and the cost of a plumber that any somewhat minor issue can be fixed with an entirely new toilet. I know both bolts are cheap but the rest of the hardware on the toilet looked old. Perhaps I am being too non-eco-friendly! I am suggesting a homeowner install an entirely new toilet rather than calling a plumber who will charge $150 to replace a single $.99 wax seal! God knows how much they will charge to install a new toilet :-)

Peg Casebeer: Thanks for the video. We did it according to your directions and it worked!

bzaq: Thank you! I don't know jack about plumbing - but you saved me. Heading out to get the kit and will knock this repair out tomorrow.

tatoweb: Thanks for your help. I just repaired my toilet following your video.

Andrew Rattle: I HATE 2 piece toilets. ive fixed mine 3 times over the span of half a year. i gotta get those one piece styles.

Joshua A: Thanks for a simple, straightforward 'how to' video!

Milton Morales: Freaking LIFE SAVER! Thank you!

Jim Lilly: I really wish I would have watched this video 8 hours ago. Dripping with sweat and my bowl was still leaking at the bolts - I didn't realize it was bolted twice - at the tank and again to the toilet. I was baffled why there was a gap between the toilet and the tank. Thank you thank you.

Theresa Konieczny: Good video. The only thing I'd add being a woman who does these kinds of jobs is that you should CLEAN EVERYTHING while it's apart. Like where the tank sits on the bowl. I believe that cleaning leaves less to go wrong later. Just my opinion

Shadow_The_Suckhog: See my toilet is cracked all the way down by the handle thing and I really don't know what to do I've been worried sick ever since it cracked please reply :/

Franny G: Very good, clear instructions. Thank you!

RajaCon: At 5 minutes and 11 seconds into this video
you made an error; which I copied and had to take it all apart and start again. You mentioned putting a rubber washer under the tank and then the nut. Instead, you inserted a metal washer and then the nut. I copied your actions.

Ricky Sewell: saved me man. thank you.

Josh Lawrence: Exactly what I needed, thanks!

elcoslic: Thanks now I know what to do tomorrow

Curt Bouchard: Great video. Just finished my job. Thank you.

Diaon Woods: I think you just saved me $100. Now, I know what kit to look for. Thanks!

Urbicide: My $.02 tip would be to replace the garbage Chinese steel bolts with solid brass tank bolts & nuts. Go to a real plumbing supply house if you have to. The plated steel will rust after a couple of years. Once the corrosion sets in, it is only a matter of time before they will start to leak. My dad's house was built in the late '60s with all American Standard fixtures. The original toilet tank bolts lasted well over 30 years. I replaced the bolts with some big box store bolts dad had picked up about 7 or 8 years ago. I am now having to go through & replace them again, but this time with SOLID BRASS, not plated steel.
