        Hi, I have replaced the wax ring which was the original problem and replaced the wood underneath cause it was waterlogged and the rubber ring between pipe from wall and bottom of bowl but it seems to be still leaking from plastic nut area? Is there another O ring between plastic nut and bottom of tank? Is it difficult to replace? Should the toilet be level or does it need to be off center a tad?
        Sorry for so many questions but new at this stuff! Thanks

        A Mighty oak is a result of a nut that held it’s ground

          that gasket is inside the tank, tighten that plastic nut a little, if it dont break you will probably fix it, if it does, mop up the water and go buy a new ballcock, dont be scared, its not hard
