My toliet is leaking from between the two parts of the tank and the seat. It's hard to pin point the leak, but it's causing a puddle behind my toilet. How can I fix this? And what can I use to seal a sink around the drain?

Thanks in advance

Not sure if that is the correct name, but that should find it at a hardware store.

Most 2 part toilets have 2 or 3 bolts that go through the tank and have nuts on the bottom of the bottom piece to hold it in place. There are rubber washers that go on the bolts to seal them.

It might be leaking there, specially if you have a leak when you don't flush the toilet.

The other part is a rubber "donut" that goes on the bottom of the flush valve to seal it to the bottom part.

The kit will have the brass bolts, washers, nuts and donut gasket, although there are a couple of variation in that gaskets.

You should be able to replace it, but notice how the old unit was assembled including andy spacers or wedges between the 2 parts.
