In response to Re: HELP!!! Toilet new or old please advise
: I need to replace an existing 50+ year old toilet due to a crack in the tank. I have looked at several models at the local Home Depot and Lowe's store and found only one model that was covered with a satisfactory rating. I did like the "Classic" model made by Crane , however I don't know if it will perform well ;-). Most of the toilet I saw looked very contemporary and just wouldn't look right in my house. Also a friend has a toilet that he removed from his house still in excellent condition and it has the old full size tank, should I consider installing it??? Thanks for any help in advance.
I don't think you will have luck in finding just a tank for a 50 year old toilet. Kohler has some nice desighns in their toilets. As far as your friends toilet, its a 3.5 GPF toilet and thats a much better flushing toilet than the new 1.6 GPF toilets. The 3.5 toilet uses more water but you also get a better flush
