Customer Question

We accidentally broke off a top corner of the tank on our one piece Toto toilet. It is a large piece and half the water ran out of the tank! The broken piece fits perfectly in the space it left, but we are unsure whether or not we should try to glue it back into place. If so, what kind of glue should we use?

You can try using 5 minute epoxy. The glue surfaces must be clean and dry. 5 minute epoxy will set in 5 minutes (after mixing) but will take 24 hours to cure completely. After it cures you can try refilling the tank.
