Reinstall old or new toilet
Posted by Larry on October 26, 1999 at 19:33:36:
We are in the process of remodeling a master bathroom. The old toilet is a 30 year old American Standard which has worked fine. Someone told me that sometimes when a toilet is removed and then reinstalled that cracks or leaks could develop. Is this correct, and if so, how frequent does this occur? The question that I am faced with is whether or not to replace it with a new toilet. I have heard both sides of the 3 gal. vs. 1.6 gal. tanks, and round vs. elongated bowls. Color or style is not an issue for us. I would appreciate anyone's advise and/or comments, especially regarding the issue of cracks or leaks. Thanks.
