I would change out the flush valve itself...it will come with the right gasket....it won't cost anywhere near the price of a new toilet...and it will save you time in the long run..good luck and.thanks for rating my effort....the fang.

Toilet tank to bowl small leak


You need to replace the tank to bowl nuts, washers, and gaskets as well as the flush valve gasket. One word of caution. When installing the new bolts to hold the tank in, place a rubber gasket under the washer inside the tank, and also one on each bolt under the washer underneath the tank. If you omit the one under the tank you may end up cracking the tank when you tighten it down.

Orion toilet, the tank to bowl gasket leaks


turn off the water,, flush the toilet ,, using a rag or paper towels sop up the remaining water in the tank, ( if you hold the flush valve down more will exit the tank) remove the water inlet tube, remove the 2 or 3 hold down bolts that have a slotted screw head inside the tank, and a nut on the underside of the bowl, use care in lifting the tank off the bowl section, as they are normally a matched pair and most aren't interchangeable, on the underside of the tank you will see the bottom of where the flapper attaches,, at that point will be the gasket that needs replacing, remove it, and install the new one, reverse this order to re assemble,, NOTE, you don't have to tighten the tank bolt very much,, snug is better than over tightening, the tank will crack if you over tighten the tank back on the bowl, so use care in this step, I always replace the tank bolts at the same time,

Memoirs leaking from seal between tank & bowl. Just replaced the gasket and still leaking


In 2008 I bought the Memoirs model that Lowe's was selling. I've had multiple tank/bowl gasket leak problems. When I went to get a replacement gasket this weekend, Kohler had changed the style of the tank/bowl gasket assembly in the current Memoirs model that Lowes sells. I wonder if this is because the old gasket assembly is known to be defective and prone to leaking?

When I called Kohler, it took two customer service associated, but I was granted a WHOLE NEW TOILET with the new style of tank/bowl gasket assembly. I just had to have the receipt for the (3 yrs ago) purchase. Kohler e-mailed a letter for a replacement toilet within about 15 minutes and before the end of the day, I had a whole new toilet in my bathroom.

I'm not a contractor. Just an average homeowner, so I can't say for sure that the old style (large, black, plastic rectangle on the bottom of the tank and a rather thin gasket ring) was defective or not. (At first Kohler offered only a replacement tank, but after hearing the number of times both I *and* plumbers have replaced the gasket, they did authorize the replacement of the entire toilet.)

My mother has a Jacuzzi Toilet and the only number she can give me is the number stamped on the inside of the Tank as BN30 Bn31. Can you tell from that what the model is. I'm trying to get a gasket...


*********** has a Jacuzzi Perfecta.
This came in two models... one with a round bowl, the other with an elongated bowl.
Both of them use the BN30 BN31 tank.

If you have trouble tracking down a gasket, you might try using plumbers' putty.
Be aware, though, that there have been reports of the back of these tanks cracking. Check the tank to ensure that the leakage is coming from the gasketed surface, and not from a crack.

Good luck!

New Glacier Bay Toilet leaks between tank and bowl. I have taken off the bowl and re-attached several times and the bowl leaks at the factory installed gasket every time, one side or the other. It appears...


Hello, W/D here.
The gasket you are talking about is hard to get into the hole properly. It tends to want to "bunch up" on one side or the other. The easiest way that I know of to install it is to place the gasket on the tank and then to wet the seal and wiggle the tank as you set the tank onto the back of the bowl. Water based jelly also works (better). Just apply sparingly if using the jelly; place a little around the seal, and a little around the molded socket of the bowl, and place the tank on the bowl. wiggle the tank back and forth lightly, then align the tank with the bowl and insert the bolts. If you have a mirror and flashlight, use them to help inspect your work as you go.
Best regards, --W/D--

Water leaks from tank to bowl till water level in the tank is jus


Yes. You will have to remove your tank from the bowl to replace the defective fill stack(the tube thing your flapper is attached to) it is not as hard as it seems.First remove water supply tube.Then remove the through the tank bolts. should be two of them. Lift off and turn tank upside down. remove spud gasket. Unscrew old stack. You should be able to get a universal kit to work with your tank and should come with all new parts including new flapper and spud gasket. You will need new through the tank bolts and note the sequence of assembly to get water tight seal on tank. Hope this helps
