Question about Jacuzzi BK37959 White Era?? Two-Piece Elongated Toilet BK37

2 Answers

I bought two of the Jacuzzi model BK37959ERA elongated complete toilets. In both toilets the right hand bolts that hold the tank to the base have a slighrt leak, straight through dripping off the threads. I tried tightening the bolts more but no luck. In both cases I did notice when I removed the bolts to inspect for problems I noticed what looked like a small torn O ring. Do you know if an O ring is part of the bolt assembly? Also any thoughts on solving the leak? - Thanks Greg Baker

Should be a few flat rubber washers and a few metal or heavy plastic washer,But sometimes even when all the parts are right you still need to apply a little silicon or even plumbers putty.I do this to all that I work on,Just as a preventative measure.This is also the quickest and least cost effective way to repair it.

I called Jacuzzi and was told that during packaging of the product some toilets made it out the door with improper bolt the O ring should not have been on the bolt. Needless to say I had to removed the tanks and reassemble after mine continued to leak no matter how tight I got them.

We bought an elongated smooth sided Jacuzzi toilet and it is leaking clean water from the back toward the wall

Could be a few issue. First check at the back where the tank sits on the bowl, reach underneath or look with a flashlight if you can to see between the tank and the bow, pay attention to the bolts in particular, if you see any water dripping down the bolts or between the tank and the bowl, the tank to bowl gasket ir bowl gasket bolts are leaking, and need to be replaced. Also look inside the bowl when its flushing, no water should be splashing up over the edge of the tank. Also inspect underneath the fill valve that gasket could also be leaking, or the supply line could be leaking.

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!

This toilet is great. We have had it installed for a little over a year and now we find that it has started leaking between the tank and the base. The model number is BK37959. We need to know how to...

you will need to pull the tank off and replace the gasket in between and make sure the nut underneath is tight. careful not to overtighten. Make sure you wear gloves the stain from the old gasket on your hands is hard to get off. Also when reattaching the tank be careful to not overtighten the bolts so you don't crack the tank.

The tank wiggles/shakes doesnt seem secure. I am worried if I crank down on the bolts the tank will crack. Also my ceramic floor is not quit even there is a crunching noice when you set on the toilet....

you are correct if you overtighten the bolts the tank will crack.
They make rubber spacers that go between the tank and the stool, that can be put in to help the part of rocking or wiggly, try that.

with your toliet making a crunching noise on the tile, my first question is does the toliet rock at all? i would try and tighten the bolts on the base or the next step would be to pull the toliet and put a new wax ring then tighten it down. It makes a crunching sound because part of it is hitting the tile so makes sure it tight to the floor

Jacuzzi Era elongated seat attachment

first need to buy the longer oval seat so it sits correctly at the front most mounting screws are universal-- go buy thin rubber washers and trim and place between the hinge and bowl than tighten down this will stop slippage but the front if not correctly sitting on the bowl will still cause problems

I'm helping with my sister's toilet. The tank is

The tank gasket is a large one, and it appears oversized, but this is the right size. It is held in place by bolts that pass from the tank into the back flanged portion of the base, behind the seat. If it is wobbly, you can try to tighten the bolts, but usually the best course is to replace the bolts and gasket as a unit. The replacement parts are sold as a set, and are available at any hardware store. When installing, keep the tank level, and do not overtighten, but try for equally snug.
Best regards,
