Question about Kohler Home
When you have a leak at the bottom there are only a couple of options. One, the seal that was replaced wasn't done properly and needs to be replaced. If you didn't have to sit on it to squash it into place the seal was to thin and you need an oversized wax seal. The other option which is very rare is that the tank itself has a crack and is leaking from the bowl. Like I said, this is very rare. One easily overlooked area is where the tank and bowl are connected. There is a seal between the two and can also leak. This leak will be slow and will usually run down the side of the bowl where you can't see it until it ends up on the floor. If you do find this to be the problem, replace that seal and be sure you don't overtighten the mounting bolts.
My suggestion is that you do both at the same time. As long as you have the water shut off and the tank drained, do them both and alleviate all the problems at one time. The extra cost for the seal between the tanks is only a few dollars.
