If this crack wasn't caused by you, and it was a factory defect.
I think you should call a plumber and have him replace it,
and get you a new toilet for free from the wholesaler. But
of course you will need to pay the labor of the plumber.

All my best to you

Tip

How to reset your toilet


Things you'll need.
New toilet bowl bolts, wax ring, toilet flex supply line (if you don't plan on re-usings old) , crescent wrench, channel locks, plastic cup, newspaper, hack saw, towel, protective gloves (latex, vinyl).

First thing is to turn off the water supply to the toilet. Flush your toilet and hold down the lever to get as much water out of the tank as possible. Now take a plastic cup and scoop out the remaining water in bowl, throw into tub or sink.

Take your crescent wrench and un-bolt tank from floor. If bolts spin, I suggest just cutting them right below the nut, being careful not to scratch or break your toilet. Your toilet will break or crack if your put to much pressure on it, the most common spot for a crack is by the bolt holes. Dissconect supply line from tank holding cup below it to catch the water, if supply line is flex you can leave attached to shut-off valve, if rigid, remove from shut-off valve. Use towel to wipe up water.

Place newspaper out on floor. Stand over toilet facing the tank, your legs on either side of bowl, grab toilet right in front of tank on the bowl. pick straight up, your going to be hunched over while your carrying the toilet and walking like a penguin, just try to keep toilet level as you carry to newspaper.

Remove old seal from bottom of toilet and around toilet drain. Wear gloves and put spoils into plastic bag. Use screw driver to scrape any chunks up. Clean area. Remove old bolts from toilet ring and place new ones in. If toilet ring is broke, call a plumber. Place new wax ring on toilet ring. Make sure bolts are pointing straight up. Get toilet above bolts and lower slowly guiding bolts through toilet holes. After toilet is on, push with light steady pressure straight down to help wax ring spread out even and make new seal. If toilet is leaning towards wall as you push then compensate to have it lower level as possible. Never use a cold wax ring, have it at room temperature. After its lowered sit on toilet for a minute.

Remove any wax that has oozed out and place nuts on bolts, with washers going on first. Hand tighten both sides, then take crescent wrench and tighten down slowly alternating sides, a couple turns on one side then a couple on the other making the toilet set level and ensuring a good seal.
Do not over tighten As it gets harder to turn nut, take your index and thumb and pinch the end of the wrench. Hold with enough force to just hold the wrench, tighten until your fingers slip off. That's the best way I can describe how to tighten bolts safely with out damaging your toilet, if there is a leak you may need to tighten a bit more, use your best judgment. Use hack saw to cut-off excess of bolt,

Attach your supply line and turn water back on slowly. Test for leaks, if no leaks your good.

Do not caulk around your toilet: all that does is turn a leak into a disaster by keeping it hidden from you, Eventually your sub floor will rot and you will have a huge repair bill.

Wand will not launch when seat is activated


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

f the toilet bowl overflows, use a plunger or auger to eliminate clogs. If the toilet does not flush, tighten or replace the defective handle , adjust or replace the lift chain , or replace the flush mechanism . Jiggling the handle forces the lift chain or rod to re-seat the flush mechanism, telling you that something is awry.

If the bowl drains sluggishly, remove the clog with a plunger or auger, or raise the water level in the tank .

If water runs continuously through the toilet, lower the water level in the tank , adjust or replace a lift chain or wire , repair or replace a worn flush valve , clean or replace the valve seat assembly .

If water appears under the tank, tighten the tank hold-down bolts , lower the water level in the tank, replace the float valve , replace a malfunctioning ball or tighten nuts on the water supply line, replace leaking supply line . As a last resort, re-seat the toilet .

If the seat is cracked or unsightly, replace it .

If the bowl or tank is cracked or otherwise unacceptable, replace the entire toilet .

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.

Orion toilet, the tank to bowl gasket leaks


turn off the water,, flush the toilet ,, using a rag or paper towels sop up the remaining water in the tank, ( if you hold the flush valve down more will exit the tank) remove the water inlet tube, remove the 2 or 3 hold down bolts that have a slotted screw head inside the tank, and a nut on the underside of the bowl, use care in lifting the tank off the bowl section, as they are normally a matched pair and most aren't interchangeable, on the underside of the tank you will see the bottom of where the flapper attaches,, at that point will be the gasket that needs replacing, remove it, and install the new one, reverse this order to re assemble,, NOTE, you don't have to tighten the tank bolt very much,, snug is better than over tightening, the tank will crack if you over tighten the tank back on the bowl, so use care in this step, I always replace the tank bolts at the same time,

Toilet tank cracked


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.

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.

Toilet bowl doesn't hold water but tank is full


The bowl is filled up with the little hose inside the tank, it locks inside of the overflow drain. And runs water in there as it flushes to swirl the water and fill the bowl. Water seeks it's own level, and the level in the bowl is at the top of the trap. It has to hold water, unless it isn't filling or it is leaking. Check out the filler and hope the bowl doesn't have a crack in it. Hope this helps.

American Standard Elongated toilet bowl water level slowly drops


The tank holding the proper amount of water is a good sign. The inside of the stool is like the GOOSE NECK under you sink. It always holds water. This may sound like a bit of a hassle to do but if all 3 toilets are identical, here is what you can try if you are a bit handy. Go to the hardware store and purchase 4 toilet wax rings with a plastic flange and a few sets of toilet floor flange bolts(they are cheap and you can always return if not used, as It is better to have xtra parts on hand). Turn off the water supply to the "Mystery Toilet". Leave the tank and everything connected to the stool. Flush the toilet and remove all excess water from the tank and bowl. This can be done with a shop vac, sponge or towel. Disconnect the water supply to the tank. Remove the bolts holding the stool to the floor and carefully remove toilet. Scrap off all the old wax from the floor flange and bottom of stool. Now go and repeat this proceedure to one of the toilets that is working properly. In other words Switch the "Mystery Toilet" with a "Working Toilet" and see how they react. If the working toilet does it in the same bathroom and the "Mystery Toilet" does not do it in the other bathroom then you probably have a VENTING PROBLEM. If the "Mysery Toilet" Does it in the other bathroom then you most likely have a Defective Toilet. This Job is best done by 2 people, as it can sometimes be challenging to center the new wax ring on the toilet flange. Reconnect to the floor and reconnect water supply to the tanks. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN BOLTS to the floor flange as you may crack the toilet. All drain lines must be vented properly for water to flow. If you are curious check out drain venting on the internet. Also, sometimes a vent can become obstructed with debris, ice, bird nest, etc.. I would 1st check the vent on the roof visually and then have someone flush and listen. If you believe the vent is clear....Then do the toilet switch and go from there.....Hope this helps and Happy Holidays....Joe
