Toilet Tank Cracked

The toilet tank cracked (I have no idea how), I went to replace it, and cannot find the Peerless Pottery brand anywhere - Is there a compatible tank replacement for this make/model?

Welcome to the forums.

Not likely to find just the tank. Replace the entire toilet.

Not worth the time or effort - replace the entire unit.

Especially with modern low water consumption toilets it is important to match the tank and bowl. They are designed to work together. A modern tank on your older bowl could result in weak flushes and clogs.

I cracked my tank in a spectacular feat of creative stupidity and unintended destruction. It is a 1950ís yellow toilet and since that color is long gone replacing the toilet meant redoing a lot of the bathroom (tub, etc.).

By great luck I found a guy selling the exact tank on ebay - and even within driving distance.

I agree you might just replace the whole toilet but if there is some reason you canít or donít want to maybe you could check ebay.

Hereís an example of a tank for sale, maybe you could find your exact tank if need be.

If cost is an issue I think we can all relate, but I recently was given a tip from a plumber that he was pretty impressed with the Project Source toilets from Lowes. Project Source is their store brand. Anyway, he said he had installed a few and was impressed with them. I normally never recommend store branded faucets or fixtures, but in this case I'll make an exception.
