We should not suggest buying parts when we don't know make and model of the product in question!

Any obvious damage to the old ones?


This is good advice.

Also, is it possible that you are damaging the seals when you install them ? Maybe the damage doesn't show up at first but, after awhile it causes the seal to fail ??

A little vegetable oil after instillation might help too , as someone said.

And maybe knowing make and model would get some real answers.

i am new to this site hello all. hope someone can help me with is . i have put 3 new flush seeles in my toilet the last a little while dont understand what is happening the start leaking again the bowl stops holding water. i have put plumbers grease on it and that doesnt last eather. can anyone help.


How much is the toilet leaking? Is it leaking into the tank below, or onto the floor of the bathroom?

My toilet, which has worked the same since we bought it 18 years ago, will hold water in it for awhile but eventually it "leaks" into the tank below it. It has worked fine all these years. I do remind people to add a little water to the toilet if it is empty before they use it.

If your toilet is leaking water onto the floor of the bathroom, then you certainly do need to fix that. You may want to look into just replacing the whole toilet.
