Why is My toilet is leaking at the screws of the tank?

Most likely you have to replace the wax seal. You can do this by going to the hardware store and buying a wax seal in the plumbing department. Next, you turn off the water to the toilet ( empty it by flushing it AFTER you have the water off). Now, you unscrew the screws on the base of the toilet, next you lift the toilet off . Now, you will see the old wax seal. Remove it. Put the new one on. Replace the toilet, redo the screws, start the water back. You should be ready to go. You can also call a plumber in to do it for a 60.00 service call and his labor would probably cost you a 100.00 to 150.00. I know all of this because I have replaced 3 wax seals.
