Bathrooms and toilets

Alright, just in case anyone was wondering. When they say, “Don’t over-tighten the screws holding the tank to the toilet base”, it is a warning that should be heeded by the prudent individual. I can say this with perfect clarity since I personally tested the theory and was rewarded by a torrent of water bubbling happily from a cracked tank. What joy emanated from my persona as I writhed maddeningly trying to stop 70 gallons (its a big toilet) of water from saturating my newly laid bathroom floor.

I should really just put my tools away for good…

    yea… you can crack the tank or unseat the rubber flange thing that creates the seal between the tank and the bowl.
