leaking toilet

You need to figure out WHY/WHERE it's leaking. It sounds like it could be the tank to bowl bolt gaskets inside the tank or the larger gasket between the two. Does it leak more when you flush?

leaking toilet

if it's a fluidmaster fill valve, i have had the small hose (runs from the valve to the fill tube) come off and the water sprayed up on the lid, then ran down the back. just a thought.
