In response to Re: Toto Toilet - Drake CST744S leaks where bolts attach tank to toilet
: Elaine,
: If the "tank to bowl" bolts are leaking, they may need tightening.
: Things to check if that doesn't work.

: Remove the bolts, and check the china, sometimes I sand it with emory cloth to knock down rough edges.
: The rubber washer should be smooth and clean,
: (no plumbers putty here!)

: Terry Love

:
: : Two small bolts beneath the Toto Drake toilet are leaking. I believe they connect the tank to the toilet.
: : I wonder if I should try tightening, etc. or would be better off ordering new parts, like a seal or something.
: : I'm healing from hip surgery and can't afford to disable the toilet by doing something stupid.

: : Should I call a plumber or is this something simple to fix?

: : Thanks, Elaine
I purchase two of these toilets,and they flush just fine,but,.I am having the same problem leaking at the bolts.The problem I think it is is the big rubber sealin the center of the tank.also.You can not tighen down the tank too far,or the china willcrack.
