If I understand you correctly you remove the tank and looked into the opening of the bowl where the tank attaches. There is usually a dollop of white silicone sealer. This is to plug a pssage created when the toilet was manufactured. Removing this will cause the toilet to not operate properly. If the hole is not sealed properly seal with a good grade silicone sealer. Make sure surface is dry before applying. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: old crane toilet, leak between tank and toilet, need new gasket.

You might try looking in an hardware store, or a plumbing shop that has been in business for a long time. Sometimes they have parts that can't be found elsewhere. I would take the old seal with you, if you still have it.

SOURCE: toilet cistern doesn't fill up

it sounds like one or more of your shut off valves has a glog from hard water calcium. were from indiana its a big problem here.To check this u will have to shut off main water supply and remove top of shut off valve and check for white crusty blockage, even if u see a few particals its present. It can severely restrict flow.

SOURCE: Toilet Refills Every 15-Minutes

I have minute amount of leakage into the bowl causing mold to grow. I believe that it may be the rubber seal for the flapper body to the porcelain.

SOURCE: hole in back of toilet (stool) leaks water.

The hole your refering to is common in the manufacturing of toilets and is generally filled before it leaves the manufacturing. I have repaired several toilets, new toilets, all American Standard, using a good grade of epoxy - not silicone. I used West System epoxy as this is made for marine projects and surprisingly states "toilet repair" as one of the uses of their product. I'd suggest carefully chipping the smooth porcelan around the hole to give the epoxy something to grip. Use a knife or screwdriver to gently chip the edges and make sure the area is dry. Press the epoxy into the hole and give it enough time to cure before putting it back in service. Of course, if the toilet is less than a month old I suggest returning it and getting a new toilet.

Toilet not flushing properly


Check the fill valve for any obstructions, or the diaphragm under the top cover. where the small hole attaches to the top of the fill valve. Why was it removed? If due to blockage the blockage may still be inside the bowl trap.

Toilet not flushing correctly :why does tank not fill so that it will flush


the fill valve is not letting water in you either have a float that raises up when water is full so when you flush the float drops down letting water in then when water raises it shuts off i would replace the float fill valve and corky flapper.... here is what you do .... first shut water off where it goes up to the tank....... flush commode to empty as much water from tank....... reach up under tank there is a plastic coupling that connects the water supply line to the bottom of the toilet tank...put a small pan under the shut off valve that goes to the toilet some water is going to drain from the tank when you take the coupling loose..... turn the coupling counter clockwise ( use a channel lock adjustable wrench to loosten then had turn) once this is loose you can pull the riser tube away from the tank...... now there is a plastic nut that screws the shaft to the bottom of the tank loosten with channel lock then remove with hand by turning counter clock wise ( you will get a bunch of water flowing down to the pan) remove the entire fill valve , replace with a fluidmaster fill valve ( about 8 bucks from big box store when you take the new fill valve out of the box there is a neopreme seal you must put on the new threaded shaft ( it has an inner ring you may have to punch out) once you put this on you can insert the entire shaft down through the hole in tank then secure with thin nut provided tighten but do not overtighten then put coupling back on,,,,,put the over flow tube on the tit of the fill valve and stick down into over flow ok thats done when you go to big box store purchas a 5 buck corky flapper (red caus it can handle chlorine water better) remove the old one at bottom of tank( just two clips to remove and chain attached to flush lever...install new one be shure chain does not have a lot of slack so it does not fall under flapper seal when you flush......OK YOU ARE DONE TURN WATER ON WATCH TANK FILL LOOK FOR LEAKS TAKE A TOWEL AND DRY ALL AREAS THEN TAKE YOUR HAND AND FEEL FOR LEAKS UNDER TANK AND DOWN TO SHUT OFF VALVE .....CONGRATS YOU DID IT!

We have a toilet problem now for 8 years since we bought our place,the toilet leaks onto our bathroom floor we know where the leak is someone have put silicone around the plastic valve right @ the bottom...


With out seeing it, it is hard to actually know what the problem is, but it sounds like it is either where the water line enters the tank, or the gasket between the tank and the bowl. Either way there should not be any silicone. The water line flows into the fill and shut off valve. If it is leaking from there get a whole new valve for under $20.00. For the gasket between the tank and the bowl you have to remove the tank and replace the gasket.

What many people are unaware of is a small crack in the tank and rarely a small crack in the bowl. If the leak is not from one of the two things I mentioned above it has to be a crack and in that case a new toilet.

If you can not tell where the water is coming from it could be a crack or the wax ring under the toilet may need replaced. You might want to call a plumber and get a free estimate on what the problem is.

Good luck with this.

Water is leaking slowing after filling up the tank and water supply is shut off. where is the leak?


In this toilet there is a flapper valve that blocks the hole for the water to transfer from the tank to thebowl. If you fill the tank and water is leaking into the bowl put your hand in the tank and apply alittle pressure to the flapper, the leak should stop. You can buy replacement parts for this toilet at Home depot or Lowes they carry universal lits that are perfect for this issue.

My tank bolt holes are leaking


If you cannot tighten them, then they will need to be replaced. Turn off the water supply valve, flush the toilet and bail out as much residual water as possible. Remove the old bolts and separate the tank from the bowl. Replace the old tank gasket and refasten the tank with new bolts, properly placing rubber washers symetrically. An added precaution that I use is (after drying the inside of the tank well) is applying a dab of clear elastomeric sealant to the top of each bolt head, working it past the edges of the bolt heads onto the tank. Allow the sealant to cure as per directions. Open the supply valve slowly and allow the tank to fill. Inspect the tank bolt holes for leaks.

Water runs after it fills up?


I am not familiar with that model, but it sounds like your fill valve is leaking or the water level in the tank is too high. Take the toilet tank top off and flush the toilet. When the water gets full and you hear the water stop ( except for your leak) look at the flush valve. Is water running over the top of it and running into the hole in the middle? Then the float need adjustment.
If you are hearing you leak still, lift up on the float. Did it stop? if so the valve may need adjustment due to it not seating completely. You can probably find something online (youtube) easier than I can explain it.

The toilet is only 2 months' old. The water keeps


Remove the top of the water tank.
check to be sure that the flush cover (about in the center of the tank) can close all the way. It seats into a 2 inch hole - and must seat all the way around. If it fails to seat, then the fill valve (on the left side of the tank) will continously let water into the tank.

As a starter experiment, you may try just turning whe water off at the wall shut off. Then inspect the tank to confirm that it is losing water.
If confirmed, then the above solution is correct.
If it is not losing water, then the fill valve is faulty and will need to be replaced (it is allowing water to over flow into the "OverFlow" tube.....

I recommend that you keep the water turned off at the wall until the toilet is needed - and the problem is repaired.

Purchase a new flush valve at hardware store.
You'll need cresent wrench, locking pliers, small pipe wrench, small pail, towels, putty knife.
