Tank to Bowl Leak (unlevel installation)
Posted by Dan on April 09, 2002 at 00:33:07:
After re-installing my toilet with new universal type parts, I have a leak between the bowl and tank. It looks like it is coming from both the bolts and the over flow tube area.

I�ve read the archives to take off the metal washers supplied with bolts holding down the tank.

The large tank to bowl washer also came with a thin paper-fiber type gasket which I put against the tank, then screwed on the spud nut. Was this right?

My toilet is not level by one cm. Can this cause a leak from the tank. I didn�t want to shim the bowl for fear of breaking the new seal on the flange.

A great site! Thanks for your help.
