Well, at least the one in our master bathroom.  Came home last night, put in the new bolts & gaskets.  Fill the tank a bit... drip... drip... dripdrip... dripdripdrip....

"Ah, dammit."  says I.

Squeak of a valve being shut.  Flush.  *wipewipewipe* Tightening of bolts.  Hiss of water filling the tank...

Drip.  Dripdripdrip. Drip.  Dripdripdrip.

"GAH!"
"Honey?"
"I.. ah.  Nothing.  Stupid tank's leaking.  It's seated right... the drain ring's still good... "
"We can ask..."
"No!  He helped us out enough.  I don't wanna keep bothering him."
"... okay."

Flush.  *wipewipewipe*  More tightening.  More water.

Dripdripdripdripdrip.

"F*** YOU!  F*** YOU AND YOUR ASSREAMING BOLTS!"  Grumblegrumblegrumble... tightening till I'm afraid the tank will crack.  "I'll tear you out of the f***ing wall, I swear!"
".... honey?"

I mean, this should be simple, right?  I've done it twice now, with success, to other toilets.  So what's the deal?  Only t hing I can think is that maybe the ring on the bottom of the septic tank is in need of replacing.  Which is fine, I have a new one on hand.  But it's just one of the bolts that keeps leaking.  Didn't do it before I replaced the flush valve.
