Help with what parts I need to fix tank problems

Hi Guys,

I'm awful with plumbing, but I was wondering if you guys could point me to the right parts that I need. I don't think my simple problem is worth hiring someone so I thought I'd ask you guys:

The plastic piece disconnected from the flange that opens and can't reconnect so I need that part replaced.

The lugs that bolt the toilet down are rusty and that rust is getting the bowl nasty. So I could use some help with which they are and what/where I should order those too.

The pipes in this toilet are straight up nasty too, maybe I should change them? I could try to clean them.

Thanks for your time!

Just replace the flush lever, the piece that came disconnected, take it out and over to a local hardware store they will set you up just fine. As for the rusty bolts, I wouldn't worry about them.



When its all said and done there is usually more said than done

Looks like the piece on the flapper where the chain connects just broke off.
Replace the flapper.
About a 5 min. fix.
The other stuff does not matter.
