I found this video by accident and must say it was the best $1.98 I ever spent on home improvement!

Your material is straight forward and gave me the confidence to tackle this job. Even though it took a bit longer than expected everything is leak free and flushing like a champ.

I recommend this video for those who have some mechanical ability and a little patience.

Well done Lad!

Extremely helpful. Would love to see a general trouble shooting toilet problems. Example, what to do if your toilet has a slow running leak, etc. Would also like to see more plumbing and electrical quick fix mindbites from mike.
