I inspected the inside of the tank very thoroughly and made sure proper sealing will occur around all bolt holes, in fact I inspected all the holes on the bottom of the tank and the entire tank. I will not sell a tank that will not seal properly because of chipping around the bolt holes on the inside. This tank has chipping around one or more of the bolt holes on the OUTSIDE of the tank. I inspected the chipping very carefully to make sure there are no hairline cracks associated with chipping by the bolt holes or anywhere else on the tank.
Chipping around the OUTSIDE of the bolt holes is unimportant because sealing DOES NOT occur on the outside the tank, it occurs on the inside of the tank as explained earlier. If there is chipping around the bolt holes I include photos so there are no surprises or disappointment when the tank arrives. Just remember you must be careful when tightening the tank bolts because one turn too many will crack the bottom of the tank. Grinder marks by the bolt holes on the bottom of a tank are created when accidental touching of a grinder during removal of rusted-on nuts to tank bolts.
These grinder marks are no problem and cause no structural issues with the tank. This tank will be FULLY insured for the full amount at no cost to you. Here is a state-by-state list of transit time from Kansas City, Mo.
Additional information on used tanks. This listing is for a used porcelain tank only. Used guts and handle have been removed AND are not included unless otherwise specified. No guts are included with this tank.
If you have your old guts you may reuse them. Otherwise, inexpensive new guts and handle are recommended when installing a tank. Front and sides of tank are cleaned thoroughly. Inside, underneath and backside of tank may or may not show signs of stains, paint, etc.But are unimportant because they are not visible when tank is installed on your bowl and with your lid sitting on top. Replacing your tank is easy. Find brand and model number 3.
(IF YOU CAN'T FIND BRAND OR MODEL NUMBER, SEND A PIC AND I CAN IDENTIFY IT). Minimum 1 hour driving and shopping for new toilet. Minimum 1 hour replacing toilet if no problems.
Minimum1 hour disposal of old toilet. The base of the bowl of your existing discontinued toilet may leave a "footprint" on the existing floor and may lead to recarpeting or retiling. Your existing discontinued toilet may have been painted around in years past and installing a new shaped toilet may lead to repainting the entire bathroom.
Installing a newer, smaller flush toilet may lead to sewer and septic problems or require two or more flushes every time to get waste all the way gone and not backing up. Plumbing and rough in problems may arise, disposal of the old toilet may be a problem, overall dimensions of a new toilet may be an issue, colors of new toilets may not match sink and tub, antique themed bathrooms or brand name themes may not retain their theme anymore after putting a cheap new toilet in and decrease the value of your home, etc. Keep all house toilets the same model if you can.
If your toilet is a gem of an older big flush toilet save it while you can. A NEW TOILET IS AN EXPENSIVE CAN OF WORMS. A REPLACEMENT TANK IS A SEMI-EXPENSIVE PIECE OF CAKE!
