american standard cadet toilet leaking
Posted by jeff on October 29, 2002 at 20:45:54:
I recently installed an american standard cadet toilet and noticed that water was leaking around the base of the toilet. I replaced the wax ring and the toilet still leaked. I discovered that the water was actually coming from the back of the bowl out of a small manufacturing hole in the porcelain. I called american standard and they told me the hole was there so the toilet wouldn't break when it was fired as part of the manufacturing process. She also told me that all of the cadet toilets had the hole and that sometimes they leak and sometimes they don't. She then said I could return it or fill the hole with waterproof sealant. Has anyone heard of this before?

Thanks.
