Broken overfill pipe
Posted by Mark on June 12, 2004 at 12:09:46:
Hi:

I was wondering if the entire tank requires replacement if the overfill pipe (the tube the flapper slides over) is broken off at the base. The pipe snapped while the flapper was being placed. It seems like more than just this piece needs to be replaced and I was not sure if the base of this was actually part of the tank itself. I believe that it is an American Standard but might be Kohler.

I do not have a problem buying a new toilet but would like to avoid this if possible as we will be leaving the space we are renting in 3 months and I would prefer not to foot the bill. It is in our lease that we fix things of this nature. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
