Did this video help you?

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.

Kimberley Meisels: This video was EXACTLY what I needed. Thank you SO much!

Mark Maulding: That was an excellent video! Thanks so much!

ADAMTHEGREATNESS: Great Video

SuperUtube53: Now that's a good repair video! You showed every step clearly. Appreciate it...Thaniks!

Bergster417: Have not attempted the project yet, but thank you for submitting a Video that totally makes sense and is easy to understand... (Hats off to your camera-person as well).   Heading to the hardware store for parts & will follow up once the leak is taken care of... Thank you again "Great Job" . . .

Frank Lucas: I bought an older house with an old Gerber toilet. Water had started
dripping through the two bolts holding the tank to the pedestal,
completely rusting them. They're so bad that I could break apart the
wing nuts, then just pulling down the old metal and old rubber washers. I
tapped the bottom of the bolt several times which released most of the
rust from the bolt heads. The bolts are now loose enough to turn by hand
and I can even wiggle them but they refuse to come up and out. Any
suggestions why?

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.
