Did this video help you?

Dean Christensen: Very well explained. I'm pretty confident I can repair my own now. Thanks for posting.

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

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

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. 

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.

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.

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!

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

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. 

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!

coololds85: Just fixed the leak today and assembled the bolts like you did. Thanks so much. It actually stopped the leak and it worked. The only part I didn't like was having to saw off the rusty bolts. But everything else worked like a charm. I will keep watching for now on.

ycanada: Thanks for the great free advice!

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!

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?

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..

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 

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. 

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.

Martina Evans: Thank you for the video God Bless

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!)

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

mslatinmix: Just what I needed. Thank u :)

Masday2: Outstanding video! Saved me hundreds!

Melissa Brooks: Thanks for this! I was fairly sure this was the problem and had an idea of how to solve it, but this video makes me much more confident about starting the process. Helpful tips and visuals. Glad you kept in the trouble-shooting...that's real life!

akaredcrossbow: Thank you!!!!!!

telumears: Why not do some preventative maintenance while you have the tank off? Replace all the tank inner workings that also look pretty corroded while easy access with the tank off.
