Did this video help you?

Jboyz Hours: Thank you it help alot😊😊😊

scsolutions: Thanks!  I bought the korky kit which had all the parts needed for the job.  Replaced everything in the tank since i was taking the time to pull the tank off.  Took me 3 hours though cause my bolts were also completely destroyed and since the bottom plastic nut wouldnt come loose, i had to hacksaw it.  Came out great though, no leaks.

Robert Peteski: The crazy thing about it is one manufactures directions says the same as your video and the other is without the Metal washer. All I know is that metal on metal will leak some kind of seepage. Without the metal washer there is absolutely no leak.

Robert Peteski: I've got to tell you watching this video caused me more headaches. I took the tank off the bowl two times trying to find out why it was leaking. After talking to a plumber at a local hardware store I found out you did not need the metal washer, just the rubber washer through the bolt inside the tank. I hope this helps some of you. 

Robert Peteski: I think they should let everybody know that the bolt goes through the rubber washer in the tank not the metal. you don't need both, just one. the metal one will cause it to leak.

B. Myers: Get silicon and just cover the bolt with silicon.  will last a couple  years

Brooks Robinson: I had the EXACT same issue, having to cut off the rusted bolts with a hacksaw and everything.  Thanks so much for this!  :)

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
