Did this video help you?

213miguetx: Great job

Therese Rockwell: This was a great Video...definitely need a second person to help with getting bolts out and back on.

lilj804: Thanks helped a lot

diver dave: be sure to toss the new tank gasket in the microwave oven for 30 seconds - it make it much easier to install !

JAYMAN ONeill: Best vid yet on replacing tank helped me a lot! THNKYOU SIR!

SignOfZodiac: It’s called grip pliers! 🤦🏻‍♂️

SignOfZodiac: You need a whole new toilet

Domingo Salandanan: Reservoir bolk keak technicality...John off set to promotion ha?

Domingo Salandanan: Trervoir bowl lah ha...yup

Terri Mitchell: I'm preparing to do this repair and have started to look at kits at the hardware. My question is: How do you know if you have a 2" or 3" flush valve in reference to the size of the tank gasket? Thank You.

Bart Simpson: Real "regular" guy.... in a real life senerio, with a real life toilet (like many of us who fix our own stuff around the house) situation, that many of us may have. Thanks for your effort, the video is authentic & appreciated!! Great job!

Michael A: Don't put a metal washer between the bolt and rubber washer on the inside of the tank. The water can get between the bolt head and washer. Then it only has to get by the rubber washer at the threads. Without the metal washer, there is more surface area for the rubber to seal.

Jerry Tanner: thanks the rusted bolts were giving me a fit ! My old tank had the plastic bolts and screws are the ok to replace the rusted one with?

Megan Brown: Thank you so much for this video!!! I have been telling my dad for months now the tank was leaking. It finally gave away last night and water was, EVERYWHERE!!!!!!! i turned off the water at the toilet and fixed it myself to get through the night. I am going to get a kit today and finish the repair myself. The rubber washers/gaskets are completely gone. There is nothing but the bolts and part of a wing nut that eroded away from months of leaking. The other side there are no rubber left but all the bolts and wing nut look fine on that side. Thanks again for this!!!!

Aaron Fieldman: Thank you, sir!

Connie Smith: Thank you for posting this. It helped me a lot today.

Dawn Comfort: I too had to reconfigure the kit (same kit as shown here) to stop all leaks. No metal washer in tank and rubber washer immediately below the tank, so bolt, rubber washer, tank, rubber washer, metal washer, bolt and get this good and snug. That's the seal. Then the wing nuts are simply holding the sealed tank on the toilet base.

Jonathan Roy: Man I love you. So helpful thanks a lot

Jerry Barrax: Thank you!!

sophie dubois: Sir, I thank you sooooo much for this video. It’s my first “plumbing repair” (I’m not handy at all) and was able to fix the leak properly because of your explanation. I was at the stage of having to saw the screw, but with my daughters help, we got it. I’m pumped now! Thank you.
