SOURCE: water leak between tank and main unit

Hi
If it is leaking on top of the machine and under the water tank, there is a seal that needs to be replaced. Lift off the water tank. There is a large gray doughnut cap that will pop off. Take a screw driver and slip it under the outside of the cap between the machines top and pry gently up and it will pop that side. Go to the other side and do the same. Set the cap aside and take you index finger and stick it in the center of the black gasket. Lift up and if the gasket comes out with it you need to replace it. Clean the inside of the receptacle before installing the new gasket.
Once you get the new gasket, slip it at a slight angle(flat side up), then take your finger nail and run it around the outside edge of the gasket. It will slip in, then push it down. Take the cover and snap it into place. Your good to go.

SOURCE: Home Depot Pegasus Elongated Toilet I need gasket between tank an

Strange that it went, but do you still have it? If so, bring it to your plumbing supply store and they should be able to match it up. Not sure why Home Depot can't help though. If you do not have it, bring the tank so they can try it right there. Good luck and make sure you don't overtighten when reassembling (can crack easier than you think). Can always tighten, but never loosen when it's too late.

Leaking toilet tank


Is the tank cracked or is it leaking from the bolts that go through the bottom? If the bolts are leaking shut the water off, Should have a shut off valve behind the toilet, If not possible around your house. Mine is out by the road where the water meter guy can check it. But shut the water off and put 2 new bolts and gaskets through the toilet. Very cheap fix. under $4.00 USD

How to replace tank 4112 bolts


Getting them off can be a real pain when they're corroded. Turn the nut under the tank and try holding the bolt head inside, it it spins or just strips, you will have to use a hacksaw blade between the tank and the bowl to cut them off. One word of caution, when you put in the new ones a rubber gasket goes in under the washer bolt head above and under the washer from below as well. If you only put one inside the tank, it won't leak, but you could crack the tank when you tighten it up. Also you should replace the flush valve gasket at the same time.

Toilet tank to bowl small leak


You need to replace the tank to bowl nuts, washers, and gaskets as well as the flush valve gasket. One word of caution. When installing the new bolts to hold the tank in, place a rubber gasket under the washer inside the tank, and also one on each bolt under the washer underneath the tank. If you omit the one under the tank you may end up cracking the tank when you tighten it down.

I have an American standard tank 4083 that is leaking where the tank bolts meet the bowl


Shut the water off flush toilet and there should be two bolts that you can see at the under side of that tank. You need to remove them bolts and lift off the tank and install a new seal. Sometimes i mean sometimes you can tighten them a little and they will stop leaking. If it has been for awhile id just replace it.

My urinal is leaking at the bottom between the urinal and wall. it leaks when we flush it, and only when we flush. it is an american standard with a royal solan flusher assembly


There is a rubber gasket between the urinal outlet and the pipe it connects to in the wall. Pull the bolts holding it to the wall and pull it away carefully. If it has been siliconed to the way, you'll have to cut it. Swap out the gaskets. Be careful not to pinch the new gasket. Ask at your local plumbing supply for the gasket of your particular model. They'll know what your talking about.

I am installing 2 new american standard champion 4 toilets and on both of them the tank will not sit on the base. the thick rubber gasket seems to be too thick to allow this. i don't want to crank down too...


The reason the tank doesn't sit down on the bowl is cause it's not supposed to just sit flush from the start. Your suppose to tighten the tank bolts down in order to get a water tight seal. There is also these little rubber " U " shaped things that sit on the porcelain lip on the back of the bowl thats what's there to protect it from cracking when you tighten the bolts down. Just place 1 on the right side and the the other on on the left side. and tighten down 'til the tank touches the bowl.

The tank leaks from the two bolts that hold tank to bowl. I replaced bolts and the rubber gasket (it has ears). Slow dripping from two bolts.


Under the heads of the two bolts (inside the tank) there should also be rubber washers. Remove the bolts, clean the bolt holes (in the tank) thoroughly (a nylon scouring pad works). If the rubber washer aren't new, replace them. If the bolts aren't new, replace them too. While you have it apart, thoroughly clean the surfaces where the large rubber gasket seats too, in case your leak is coming from there. If cleaning and new bolts and washers doesn't fix it, you might try some plumbers putty or bathtub silicon caulk (not on the large gasket). Coat the two rubber washer generously all over. Good luck.

Took tank off and reinstalled 9 times - put new gaskets and rings in - but it leaks. Tank also wiggles a bit.


Go to the hardware store and get a tube of plumber's grease. Then grease up the gaskets and the rubber ring. Snug everything down and if it leaks snug it down a bit more
