SOURCE: elongated toilet doesn't fit where a round toilet was installed

Hi. There are toilets designed to accept a round seat and there are other toilets designed to accept an elongated seat. The primary difference is that the round seat fits a round bowl and the elongated seat fits an elongated bowl.

I recommend that you return the elongated seat and exchange it for a round toilet seat. good luck

Water is leaking from the tank to the bowl.

I've had this happen before. Mine was a bad seal between the tank and the bowl. I had to replace that stopper and the gasket underneath it between the tank and the bowl. It's not very complicated or dangerous, but you will have to remove the tank to do it. Have plenty of towels ready and plan for a place to sit the tank in (maybe your bathtub) while you are working.

Every time we flush the toilet it makes a screeching sound, like something is about to explode, any ideas on how to make it stop?

sounds like the valve is making the noise. You will need to replace it to stop the sound. The valve is the part of the stool that is located in the tank, the water supply connects to the bottom of it, and it lets the water refill the tank until the float turns it off.

I just installed a Sterling Wyndam two piece toilet, and water is leaking from the three bolts in the tank. It seems to be coming out between the plastic sleeves the bolts go through and the holes in the...

Try checking to see if you got the gaskets that around the plastic things in correctly.Often a part is in upside down or in the wrong order (IE bolt washer metal washer instead of bolt metal washer washer)You can make sure that the bolts are tight enough to compress the gasket but do not tighten them to much, you will crack the toilet.

Replace toilet tank bolts

Go to a plumbing supply house and get 2 or 3 bolts, 2 or 3 rubber sleeves for the bolts, and a new rubber gasket to go between the tank and toilet. Turn the supply water off, sorry, but, you don't know how many people don't do that. Disconnect the supply line from the tank. Flush the toilet, to remove water from the tank. Unbolt the tank. On the back underside of the toilet, you have 2 or 3 nuts to remove, depending on the toilet. Lift off the tank. Turn over the tank and set it on a towel. Now, gently tap down the bolts. Turn tank over and pull out the bolts. Turn tank back over and remove the tank and bolt gaskets, just push them in. Turn tank over. push in the new gaskets. Replace tank gasket, and gently tap down new bolts. Remount the tank. tighten the nuts, be careful, always tighten the nuts about the same. never tighten one all the way, and then another. YOU can crack the tank when tightening. Just nice and snug. Re hook the water supply, and turn on. Always check for leaks. If dripping, just tighten a little more. Just remember to tighten the all the nuts a little at a time. Keeping the tank level when tightening.

We have two sterling dual-flush toilets and oNe of them has begun to run. that is it drips and then refills the tank every hour or so, is my only choice to replace the complete refill assembly which is...

I don't have a parts breakdown on this particular toilet but I think you can just replace the seal thatholds water in the tank. If I am remembering right this part costs about eight dollars. I hope this helps you some. I will keep looking in my files to see if I can be more precise. Thank you

We just installed this toliet yesterday and there was nothing in the instructions about how to set the water level, there is not enough water in the tank to flush the toliet properly

Depending on the type of water regulator/flush valve you have it varies. Usually there is a screw that regulates how much travel there is on the arm with the float on the end, or the float that moves up and down on the column. If you restrict this movement the water fills less and vice versa.
