Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.Is it leaking on the floor or inside the toilet?
Ok, wipe off the bottom of the tank and the bowl. And check if any water shows on the toilet. If it does follow the water back to the highest point on the toilet that's not wet
Ok. Let me know what you find or if you have any more questions
Ok, if the bolt looks rusty (inside the tank) turn the water off to the tank and do not turn the water back on to the toilet until you replace the bolts. The bolts could fail altogether (if they're rusty) and flood the bathroom. To fix this you need to turn the water off to the tank. Then flush the toilet. Then sponge out the water that's left behind in the tank. You can usually buy a kit with brass bolts (must be brass not brass plated) and a new tank to bowl gasket.
