Re: Toilet won't seal
Check the bolts that hold the tank onto the bowl. I recently repaired a toilet that appeared to have a leak at the seal, but it was really the rubber washers inside the tank had failed. A very thin stream was running down the back of the toilet and appearing to come from the base.
Check or replace the spud washer (it's a thick, foamy washer that's between the tank and the bowl), too.
