Sounds like you need a new gasket. Turn off the water,empty the tank,remove the bolts from the underside of tank,lift tank off,replace gasket,or check to see if the gasket has been installed correctly. Does the gasket look like it was compressed straight? If not then you can attempt to re-seat with the same gasket,but if it still fails to seal you'll have to buy a new gasket.

Yes, it seems the folks who wrote the instructions have never actually done any plumbing.

first place a rubber washer on the bolt, then put it through the hole in the tank. Then place another rubber washer on the bolt, followed by a metal washer and a nut. Tighten the nut, not the bolt.
Using a screwdriver hold the bolt in place, and tighten the nut until snug and the rubber washers are compressed slightly.

Follow this step with all the "tank to bowl" bolts.

Now the bolts are tight to the tank and will not leak water.

Then place the large rubber gasket over the flush valve hole on the bottom of the tank. and set the tank on the bowl with the bolts through the bowls holes.

Place a metal washer on the bolt, and then a nut.

Tighten each nut equally until the tank has no wobble.

Tank to bowl leaks


Turn water supply line of to toilet. Flush and hold handle down to drain water from tank. Take lid of tank off and use a towel to soak up the rest of the water inside tank. Remove nuts on bottom of Tank bolts. Lift off and lay down on its side. Remove the rubber or sponge type gasket that is on bottom of the tank that covers the nut from standpipe assembly. Buy new gasket and install back on bottom of tank over Nut for standpipe. Put tank back on toilet bowl. Install bolts and tighten. reconnect water line and turn on.

I just installed a new perfects. The pool of water in the bottom of the bowl is small, how do i increase the pool of water in the bottom of the bowl.


The toilet you just installed is a 1.6 gallon flush water saver and will not have the same amount of water in it that your old 3.5 gallon toilet had. The water level may not be able to be raised as this is the nature of the beast.

If you can raise the level it will only be a little and will be done in the tank area by increasing the water level in the tank. If the water level in the tank is at the mark provided it a done deal.
The amount of water refilled into the bowl is done by the tube that runs from the fill valve into the overflow tube of the flush valve so if you put more water into the tank more water will be put into the bowl but the bowl will only hold as much water as the trap weir will let it hold (what the factory has sit it at and is not changeable

I flush the toilet, tank fills up and cuts off, but the water leaks out, then the tank cuts back on to fill up and this is a vicious cycle.


Go to the hardware store and get a new flush valve flap made by Korky and install it. Your flush valve flap has worn out and allowing water to leak through.

The big black washer between the tank and bottom is deteriorating also the black washers on the bolts that hold the tank to the bottom are coming apart and the tank is leaking


Any hardware stores where plumbing supply is sold including lowes and home depot sell toilet seal kits including toilet to tank seals as well as toilet rebuild kits. Ask for a toilet to tank seal and washers for the bolts which might come with the large seal(check)
1. Close toilet water valve
2. Drain tank or sop with a towel and squeeze into tub until toilet is empty or bail water out with a cup.
3. Remove two tank bolts
4. clean area where old seals were
5. put tank seal on bowl and set tank lining it on top of seal.
6. Install tank bolts with new seals and tighten evenly
7. Don't over tighten or tank will crack. You probably can tighten until tank and toilet touch evenly on both sides.
8. Fill and check for leaks.

Installing new Jacuzzi toilet, used washers when placing the tank on the toilet, tightened as much as we dare and the tank still rocks on the toilet? How do we get the tank to not rock?


The tank may still be on the ridge a little but if it rocks alot u can put washers under the nuts.........The tank will rock a little but not much because it is seated with rubber washers. Hope this hleps.

How do you replace the flapper for a 1.6 gallon, two piece Jacuzzi toilet


http://www.ccowhirlpool.com/web-pdfs/Jacuzzi_Whirlpool_Bath/Toiletry.pdf

The top link has diagrams of internal working's of different types of Jacuzzi toilets. Most of them have a tab's on the over flow tube that the flapper will fit on. Shut water off and flush tank to get most of the water out and take a look on how the old one is connected. And replace with a new one. Check out the chain or plastic string which connect's flapper to handle to get proper adjustment for flushing toilet.

The water level in the toilet bowl is too low. Can I adjust the level, and if so, how?


Too little water in the toilet bowl to start with may be due to a lost or mis-connected fill tube that directs some water into the toilet tank standpipe (and thus into the bowl below), while the toilet tank is being re-filled. Check for that little tube.

Check the web site out below for more information on this topic.

Seal between tank and toilet are leaking


Purchase a new flush valve at hardware store.
You'll need cresent wrench, locking pliers, small pipe wrench, small pail, towels, putty knife.
turn off water supply, flush toilet to remove water from tank, soak up remaining water with towel in tank, remove supply line from valve on botton of tank (you may have to hold valve with pliers inside the tank to keep from turning.) Clean area inside tank with putty knife where new valve will seat. Install new valve, attach supply line, connect overflow tube. turn on water.
Check for leaks.
Repeat if necessary. :-)
