In response to Re: Cracked Toilet Tank..Repair?
It would be very unwise to try to repair the tank. When the 1.6 gpf standard was instituted, the manufacturers intentionally changed the bolt spacing so the new tanks would not adapt to the old bowls. There is not enough water in the new tanks to flush them, so that is the reason for making them incompatible. Change the toilet.

: My 25 yr old American Standard F4048 has 2 cracks. One is below water level and seeps. The tank has not fallen apart yet. I cannot find a tank with the same dimensions for the space between the tank to bowl bolts. Is it possible to buy a new tank and keep the old bowl? Is it practical to repair the old tank.
: Thanks
