I've found that if you keep the seal clean and let the valve "snap shut" rather than gently allowing the valve to close, the toilet seals more effectively (assuming the seal is not damaged.

Carefully clean the seal area and apply a little silicone grease. If seal is torn it needs to be replaced. You can turn water supply off while working on it.

I just discovered this weekend that the ball valve wasn't set properly in my toilet.

The seal was good but the valve wasn't coming up high enough to meet the seal. So after fiddling around with it for a bit I discovered that the valve was held on with two small tabs but only one of the tabs was actually in the hole it was supposed to be in.

I simply had to hold the foot pedal down and snap the tab back into the hole. Works perfect now!

Thanks for all of the reply's!. I have tried rubbing olive oil on the seal as suggested one time before but to no avail. I will try a couple of other suggestions on this thread though!
