You can find a replacement tank on the manufactures website. However, if it's not leaking or leaking very little you can cover the crack, on the inside of the tank, with an epoxy compound. There is a whole lot of pressure on the inside of a tank and typically when they crack it shows up as a very slow leak as the water seeps through the crack. When using the epoxy don't try to put it just in or on the crack. Seal an area a couple inches either side of the crack. These are usually hair line cracks and you won't necessarily be able to see the entire area of damage.

Why is tank wobbly upon install on kohler archer toilet?


The tank mounting bolts could be loose or the tank could be incorrectly seated. Be careful not to tighten the bolts too much and crack the tank.

Toilet tank to bowl small leak


You need to replace the tank to bowl nuts, washers, and gaskets as well as the flush valve gasket. One word of caution. When installing the new bolts to hold the tank in, place a rubber gasket under the washer inside the tank, and also one on each bolt under the washer underneath the tank. If you omit the one under the tank you may end up cracking the tank when you tighten it down.

Where do I find a part number on an Eljer toilet tank?


You can purchass a whole new fixture for the same cost as just the tank I believe...
any eljer tank will fit your toilet bowl... they are pretty universal.
Does the current tank have a crack or something?you can replace the seals easilly enough if the tank is just leaking at the seal ... and the flush mechanism is also easy to replace , should that be the reson to swap out tanks too.

We have a toilet problem now for 8 years since we bought our place,the toilet leaks onto our bathroom floor we know where the leak is someone have put silicone around the plastic valve right @ the bottom...


With out seeing it, it is hard to actually know what the problem is, but it sounds like it is either where the water line enters the tank, or the gasket between the tank and the bowl. Either way there should not be any silicone. The water line flows into the fill and shut off valve. If it is leaking from there get a whole new valve for under $20.00. For the gasket between the tank and the bowl you have to remove the tank and replace the gasket.

What many people are unaware of is a small crack in the tank and rarely a small crack in the bowl. If the leak is not from one of the two things I mentioned above it has to be a crack and in that case a new toilet.

If you can not tell where the water is coming from it could be a crack or the wax ring under the toilet may need replaced. You might want to call a plumber and get a free estimate on what the problem is.

Good luck with this.

The big black washer between the tank and bottom is deteriorating also the black washers on the bolts that hold the tank to the bottom are coming apart and the tank is leaking


Any hardware stores where plumbing supply is sold including lowes and home depot sell toilet seal kits including toilet to tank seals as well as toilet rebuild kits. Ask for a toilet to tank seal and washers for the bolts which might come with the large seal(check)
1. Close toilet water valve
2. Drain tank or sop with a towel and squeeze into tub until toilet is empty or bail water out with a cup.
3. Remove two tank bolts
4. clean area where old seals were
5. put tank seal on bowl and set tank lining it on top of seal.
6. Install tank bolts with new seals and tighten evenly
7. Don't over tighten or tank will crack. You probably can tighten until tank and toilet touch evenly on both sides.
8. Fill and check for leaks.

Long Term ( 3-4 day ) Tank Leaks From Rear Vent Holes


There's probably a small crack or very small hole in the overflow tube. Turn off the water supply to the toilet and empty the tank. Look very carefully for any crack or hole in the tube. You can replace the tube, but that requires taking the tank off or repairing the leak with a sealant.

Let my tank freeze and crack on the perfecta model EZ33 959. Where can I order a new one


If the tank froze and broke it is highly likely the toilet itself may have a crack somewhere inside. You may buy the tank and find out later on the toilet itself it cracked. You have then wasted your money. Buying the tank and paying the shipping is more than likely about as much as a whole new toilet. My advice is to buy a new toilet.
