My toilet tank was leaking at the left bolt that attaches the tank to the seat. The entire bolt broke off when I was messing with it, so I went out and bought universal fit replacement bolts.
Now both sides are leaking at the bolts. I've taken the damn thing off 3 times and nothing. I attached the washers/bolts EXACTLY like the instructions say. I don't see any cracks at the holes on the tank. Is there some sort of sealant I need to put over the bolts on the inside of the tank?
Any ideas how to fix this before I call a plumber?
BTW. That blue sh-t that you put in your toilet tank to clean on each flush WILL NOT come off your hands.
This thread has a number of suggestions.
Hello, I am having one heck of a time trying to get my one toilet tank bolt from not leaking! Only one leaks, other is fine. I have torn the tank off

That must have been quite the dump to cause so much damage
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
Aight, I'm no plumber but I'm an experienced home owner and self fvcking taught. There's a wax ring at the base of your toilet. You can buy it at Home Depot or any home repair store. It's cheap too. Remove bolts, remove wax ring. ( it could be up to 3 inches thick) take the old one out of the hole in the floor and put new one in. Bolt back down, do not over tighten. Sit on toilet and distribute your weight evenly, like takin a dump.get of and retighten bolts. Boom, no more leaks.
Nevermind. I just noticed you said the bolt that attaches the tank lid to the toilet is leaking. Prayers sent.
