Sorry but a new unit is the answer as it cannot be repaired successfully
probably find that the crack is under the seal at the pipe and it is leaking from there

Someone tightened the trap nut too much. Replacement is the only practical answer. Tighten the trap nut just enough but not too much.

Go to Home Depot and buy some sink screws that go into tab that you attach the screw into the wood and the tab over the underside of sink. They also carry other stuff that works even better.

TOILET IS LEAKING


Been there, done that. Does it leak all the time? Does it leak only when you flush? Please clarify this. If the gasket is off centered, it will leak there. The bolts could be leaking, got food coloring to use as a dye? You can do this while watching the bottom of the tank, as you flush. Hairline cracks in the porcelain can be seen, get out yur magnifier and look underneath the tank, as you flush.

Recently bought ex-display bathroom sink /unit.discovered cracks to underside of sink.can you recommend a repair solution?


I have to presume the sink is made of china and there is no repairing of china. There are two kinds of cracks, hairline from some sort of impact, and shrink. While the hairline crack can be visually disappointing, if it does not extend through the drain hole area it is a safe bet that the lavatory can be installed and used normally. A shrink crack resembles the cracks of a dried up lake bed and rarely cause any problems no matter where they are located. Rarely does not mean never.

You might try a vehicle buffer on them. If that doesn't work you will probably have to use a porcelain touch up kit that can be bought at your local hardware store.

Can a hairline crack in a porcelain bathtub be repaired?


If your tub is porcelain over cast iron and the cast is not cracked your ok. If the cast is cracked then the chances of the crack continuing are great, more so with any vibrations and changes in weight distribution.

You won't for long. There is some stuff on the market that can immulate porcelain, but it won't hold for long. It really won't look the same. Now, if you are looking for practicality, and it doesn't leak, then keep it, otherwise, get a new one and you will be pleased with what is on the market now and the selections.
