Larry:--If a fully functional and satisfactorily performing toilet is your main concern, stick with the 30 year old champ. Removing and reinstalling this toilet is not going to effect it in any way. I'm sure that your long time servant will appreciate your vote of confidence and bless you with another 30 years of faithful service.
Lots of luck with your project...Bud

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.
