Did this video help you?

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.

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!
