In response to Re: Toliet leaking around cut off valve and bolt...
It feels like the bolt is a bit loose (the one connecting the tank to the base)And possibly a bit loose around the cut-off valve too. It isn't dripping very much right now but we have turned off the water. We have a pan under to catch it and in 3 hours time there are only about 3-4 drops in it. We don't have anything to tighten it with but we will get it checked Tuesday. Thanks for the help

: : We replaced our floor in the bathroom yesterday with ceramic tile. We used two wax seals when we put the toliet back down. Today (about 24 hours later) we notice a drip from the bolt that holds the tank to the toliet seat and around the cut off valve. What could be causing this? How can we fix it?

: From here it is impossible to say, start by drying off everything completely and visually inspecting the area and all connections carefully, including the tank to bowl bolts and nuts. It may be a very, very slow leak that could be hard to detect. If you're not sure how to fix it, call a professional, the leak could get worse when you're not home a cause extensive damage.
