Do Kohler toilets come with flange bolts?
Some toilets come with two sets of floor mounting bolts, allowing you to choose the set that best matches your toilet flange. However, the Kohler Highline comes with just one set of fairly long bolts, so it is likely you will need to cut off the tops of the mounting bolts to allow the caps to fit over them.

Siphon jets are small holes located underneath the rim of your toilet bowl. They allow flow of clean water from the tank into the bowl whenever you flush.
Why is my toilet leaking water into the bowl?
The most common cause of a leaking toilet tank is when the flapper fails to seat properly and form a tight seal against the valve seat. This lets water leak from the tank into the bowl. It may be caused by the flapper being out of position. If the water level has fallen below your mark, the flush valve is leaking.
