Toilet tank leaking


Hello David McInnis,

There are Three basic opportunities for leaks from the classic TOILET TANK DESIGN (separate BASE & top-tank)... around the FLAPPER VALVE alone... Typically the flapper valve & two hold-down screws. These CANNOT be repaired without removing the entire tank. GREAT CARE should be used to not FRACTURE
the mated surfaces by OVER-TIGHTENING.

This is a great time to FRESHEN UP all the
Perishable gaskets & seals... and while I NEVER advocate using any ABRASIVES on gloss finishes... Pumas stone seems to be the FINAL TOUCH in a total renewal
(to REMOVE the built up (very unsightly
TOILET BOWL RING...

Amazon com toilet bowl pumice stone

ADDITIONAL PARTS:
- Water fitting to FILL VALVE (compression fitting).
- FILL VALVE through tank (gaskets)
- Flapper Valve base, gaskets & bowl interface ring

TO Make sure all the surfaces are clean an firmly
positioned and it is not LEAKING anywhere... place
clean dry paper on the floor behind the bowl
(under the tank).

EACH/EVERY drop will leave a mark...
Do NOT over-tighten any fittings!!!

If the WALL VALVE is less than NIMBLE... also a great opportunity to UPGRADE TO A QUARTER TURN
BALL VALVE... A little shopping will find you EXACT VALVE CONFIGURATION...

Hope this helps.

How to remove large gasket from Kohler toilet that leaks


You will need to remove the tank by locating the long screws on each side of the water outflow outlet. Take those bolts out and then you can lift the tank up and thus you will access to the large gasket.

Leaking on the floor


I would start at the tube coming off of the fill valve. it often works its way out of the center stand pipe inside the tank. if not i would check the tank to bowl bolts and the gasket in between the tank to bowl.

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.)

Hello, W/D here.

With the water off, drain the tank (lift the flapper). Look inside where the flapper seats. If the (usually black) gasket is rippled, this may be the cause of your trouble. You can remove the rippled portion of the gasket with a razor knife, just be very careful not to damage the flapper seat. Removing the protruding material will allow the flapper to fully seat without damaging the gasket integrity.
Best regards,

I have the Kohler model 703 one piece toilet. It runs once about every ten minutes. It sounds just like a flush but nothing happens in the bowl. Any ideas?


Something is leaking. Your description sounds like tank water is slowly leaking and then the tank refills. You really need to use Kohler brand parts, as others pieces seem to not work well.

I have a Kohler toilet. The triangular black gasket between tank and boel needs to be replaced. While I had the tank off, I noticed the large plastic pipe that comes from the tank is threaded like a screw....


Inside the tank it has a gasket from the stand pipe to the bottom of the tank. The stand pipe threads go through the tank and a plastic nut holds it to the tank. Then a gasket goes on the nut and threads to make a seal between the tank and bowl. I have included this picture that has the above look. I hope this will be of some help for you.

Replaced the flapper with a new one and the toilet will lose water until it triggers the fill valve in maybe an hour. Is the gasket betwenn the tank and the cistern leaking slowly?


check the fill tube. sometimes they crack, put some food coloring in the tank and that will help you find leaks too. gently squeeze the tube and see if you see water running down the inside of the tube
