    I just installed my 3rd Toto Drake in the 3rd bath. The 1st Toto the bowl leaked at the tank bolts. After tighting more several times the tank cracked. I followed the directions which had no plumbers putty added. The tank cracked at the screw. $100.+ for a new tank. I puttied the connections this time had no leak. When I installed the last toliet we had another leak at the screw. Drained and added the putty. Today it is still wet at the screw. I am a little scared to tighten too much.
    Any help???

    We always sand the inside with emory cloth.
    No putty.
    We install hundreds every year, but have never broken a tank.
    Jamie also gives the flush valve nut on the bottom of the tank a bit of a turn with large pliers.

    Instructions below.
