  1. The short answer is no. You must replace the toilet, or at least the part that is cracked. Often you can order a replacement tank from the toilet manufacturer.

    Some stores sell toilet repair kits with epoxy resin, but the truth is a crack in porcelain can’t be glued or resealed. Much like glass, once porcelain is cracked or damaged pressure will expand the crack along the weak point.

    Don’t delay. If the tank breaks, you may return home to find a waterfall coming down your stairs or to a basement under an inch of water.
