Did this video help you?

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?

kpmadness: Why didn't you put the locking pliers on the bolt between the bowl and the tank?

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.

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. :(

Gayle Parker: Thanks for this great video! I accepted the challenge and completely replaced all parts in the tank with a brand new all-in-one kit. I was afraid to buy the wrong parts at the local hardware store so I brought my tank with me. One tip - my toilet has a flush handle on the side of the tank. My kit came with a front flush handle so I improvised and kept my old side flush handle assembly. I had to bend the chain rod to hover above the flap. It worked perfectly. No more leaky tank and no more running toilet. The iron bolts in my tank were nearly disintegrated like yours.. I could not unscrew them so I hammered a flat head screw driver down on the bolt inside the tank and knocked them out easily.

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.

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. 

Jolyn Matheny: I feel confident that I can do this after watching this video! Thank you!

Daniel Wong: Nice instructional video. I'm going to head to the hardware store to get a gasket replacement kit right now.

Engelhafen: Is that a crane toilet?! I think I have that same tank!

mickavellian: Woah .. I have the same problem and gave YouTube a try . The most amazing thing is that a plumber (the most honest plumber in the world) can find a true nightmare that will throw any estimates out the window. Thanks for the tutorial and thanks for the lesson on plumbing ethics and client expectations. 

Devon Smith: Thank you that really helped me with my project

tudo cervera: great video sir,,, very helpful ,, I thank you , keep up the good work.

Fernando Hernandez: God I love basic repair videos like this on Youtube. I go from "oh my god I'm going to have to call a plumber and spend $150" to "pfft, $10 at hardware store will fix that" in like 7min flat. You're the man!

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.

Rachel Duprey: thanks, great video and very helpful. next time move the carpet from away from the toilet. :)

Pasquale Bianculli: Thanks so much for this vid. It helped me to repair a very similar leak. Following you step ny step gave me much confidence to tackle this project. Much appreciated.

Allan Omar: Thanks for the vid, was pretty helpful!

Steve Vandeman: My toilet was dripping. sometimes it would leak a couple drops per day, sometimes a pint per day. After taking it apart I noticed the gasket was the same time you said you prefer. I went to Lowes and couldnt find that style. All were from the same brand, and said which brand of toilet they were for. However none looked like the one you like (which happened to be the old one the toilet had in it). I tried a few different ones and every time water would gush out when I flushed the toilet. Finally I put back the old gasket and no more leaks. I guess it was the bolt kit that needed to be replaced. But look at Lowes, none of them are that style. http://www.lowes.com/Search=tank+to+bowl+gasket?storeId=10151&langId=-1&catalogId=10051&N=0&newSearch=true&Ntt=tank+to+bowl+gasket#!&N%5B%5D=0&N%5B%5D=1z140t6 

Jacob Horne: I replaced my bolts and still a leak? Maybe it's the gaskets for the tubes under the tank I can't see?

alan4sure: Isn't this typical plumbing repair. One little thing leads to another, that shut-off valve might leak now, and the 30 minute job becomes 4 hours.

withtheheyheyithurts: Because of you, you wonderful man, I can now crap without getting my feet wet. Thank you sooo much for the help, I feel like ive learned a new and valuable skill. 

Tina Ewest: Thank you for the video God Bless

Ballenxj: Thank you! I'm usually pretty handy, but watching your video gave me the heads up I needed so I bought the kit (thick gasket) and hack saw blade before I began. The job was completed flawlessly, no more leak! YEA! PS, I never needed the hack saw blade, but I know that if I didn't get it, I would have needed it. Better safe than sorry. ;-)

Paul Eliot: Excellent.

Snoop Robinson: Thank you this work to fix it myself... Thanks for sharing the information..

H2Raby: Thank you very much for the helpful video sir, I had the exact same problem with the bolts getting old/rusted. Much appreciated!!

Kyle Berthiaume: Thanks. It's been about 20 years since I did this last. You video was a great refresher/step by step guide.

hospitalcakewalk: Thank you so much guy!! Thus is exactly what happened today. I'm gonna fix it! Thank you!!! 

Arm Guy: My screws were all rusted, but got it done.... Thank you very much for the video!

NerdishAzn: I got the same toilet and it has the same problem, does this happen to all brands of toilets?

linx101: my turn to fix, mine looks exactly the same tank model too. Big THANKS for this video. :)

striker982: Hopefully the nuts will come off easily.

Hustle Man: Great Video.....All done. Thanks for the Help!

JasonFiske: Thank you for a great video!

ssmouse77: Video & info well done. Thank you for these instructions.

spontos26532: Thank you for this video.... i was able to fix the problem myself..... :D... crazy thing tho, my bathroom is set up the exact same way lol..... thank you again

Jürgen Koks: if im too lazy to fix the toilet and i want it fixed only temporarly anyway. Could i just use crazy glue to fix the dripping part ?

SC341USMC: Just used your video to replace my tank gasket and bolts/bolt gaskets. Had a leak, did this first before resorting to replacing wax ring underneath. Thanks for the quick, easy to follow, good paced video. It had clear instructions and cut out all of the gab. I really appreciate you taking the time to show folks like me how to do it ourselves. Keep it up!

Sir Jammer: Tip; before connecting the supply line to the take. While you have the take off, wrap some plumbers tape around the inlet of the Fill Valve. Just something I watched my pappy do...so I do it to. Never had a leak!

Roy Brathwaite: Great video. It helped with my toilet repair and fixed the leaking problem. Thank you!

Rosa Torres: hi my toilet is dripping water not to the floor but to the inside the toilet bowel will this fix this problem 

anish somani: Thank you..helped me a lot

Christopher Webb: Thank you so much!!! Now I'm going to attempt it!

NVanHiker: Mike Hunt - it's most likely a flapper valve that needs replacing - a six dollar job. (And of course, Youtube will no doubt have lots of video!)

Kelli Leavens: WHO NEEDS A MAN,,,WHEN THERE'S...YOUTUBE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had called and sent videos to my landlord to fix this. Three times he came to try and fix this.......I just did it myself. And watching this video, the rubber washers were in the wrong place. Although, it is leaking on the right side. Which as I can see, it needs a new rubber washer on the inside of the tank. I'll be fixing it later. Happy 4th of July!!!!!!!!!!!!!

S Lane: Exactly what I needed. Thank you very much!!!

mslatinmix: Just what I needed. Thank u :)
