Question about Home
Tightened all bolts and fush system to the cystern, checked for cracks in cystern its self, applied aditional downward pressure onto cystern so wing nuts could be tightened.
You need the proper wax ring to seal the toilet to the flange. Remove the toilet and check the wax ring. If it isn't compressed, get a spacer and a thicker ring.

SOURCE: what could be the cause
Hello, W/D here.
Most probably, the tank-to-bowl gasket has not seated properly. They are usually neoprene, and tend to bight on the bowl socket rather than to slide into the socket where it can be compressed properly. Remove the tank bolts and look at the gasket. Re-install, using a water based lubricant on the bowl side, with the gasket installed on the tank flange. Wiggle the tank and gasket back and forth a few times, and the gasket will start properly into the cast socket on the bowl. Install the bolts and tighten to finger tight. Wiggle the tank a bit more, and level the top. Tighten the bolts uniformly.
You mention that the flush valve was hand tightened only. If this gasket is not snug (a bit more than hand tight), a leak can occur there as well.
Best regards, --W/D--

SOURCE: I have a problem with
I had the same problem one time with my toilet tank, the answer is to put some silicone on the seal washer between the take and bowl assembly and to use a level on the tank to tighten it just enough to be level and not leak.
Please take time to rate me
