Hi, my name is Chris Wade, and I'm a contractor in the city of Los Angeles. Today, I'm going to show you how to fix a toilet tank bowl. There's only going to be a couple of reasons why you'd want to repair a toilet tank bowl. If you find that the actual body of it is cracked, there's no repairing it, you're going to have to replace it. If you find that it's leaking, it's only going to leak in a couple of spots. You're going to see two plastic screws that are basically the screws that attach the bowl to the actual toilet itself. Basically, if you unscrew these two screws, you're going to be able to remove the tank from the actual toilet itself. On the inside of these, you're going to find two rubber grommets that sometimes will start to wear away and those are going to need to replaced. If you just take this wry sized wrench and pull this off. Reach in, and you're going to pull out this type of a screw. And this right here is what's going to cause it to leak. Because this thing no longer has a good seal on it. So, this is what you're going to want to replace. And if it's leaking on one side, it's best to just go ahead and get two and replace both of them. And once you get both set up here, just drop it back in the hole, push it down, take your washer, put it back in place, put your nut on, and you're going to tighten it up. And you want to make sure you get a really good cinch on that because you know water, it will find any place it can leak through, and once you get both of those put back together, go ahead and fill your toilet back up and check for leaks. And if you don't have any leaks, then you did it just fine.
