In response to Re: TOILET
: I had a plummer out today to change the wax ring in my upstairs toilet. When he pulled the toilet up we found that it wasn't the wax ring messed up but the tank was broken. (The part that fits into the pipe - don't know what it's called.) Anyway, I know the toilet probably isn't orginal to my 100 year old home (even though it was built with a bathroom) but it must be old because I found it listed in "antique toilets" on the net. My question: Is there anyway to "fix" or "rig" this toilet so it doesn't leak and be able to keep it? If not, is there a place to buy these old things? (Fixing would probably be a bettter option cost wise if possible.) Thanks for your help.

If it is leaking through a crack, perhaps the crack
can be sealed. I have an old toilet that started leaking
through cracks in the tank. I drained the tank, roughened
the surface on the inside and applied Goop and let
it dry for 24 hours. Refilled the tank and it hasn't
leaked a drop in the last two years.
