The way I see it the solution consists in making the toilet tank resistant to leakage notwithstanding the hairline crack in the porcelain tank. Here are two ways of making the crack no longer viable for water to leak through: 1. Seal up the crack all along the whole length of the crack line with fail-proof sealant. 2. Seal up the whole interior space of the tank, so that the crack becomes irrelevant as the exit line of water from the interior space of the tank. No. 1 solution therefore demands a fail-proof sealant: wherefore what have man’s science, technology, and engineering in re sealants have to offer today? Paging, paging scientists, technologists, and engineers: what does the sealant community of mankind today have to offer in re fail-proof sealants - to stop leakage from the hairline crack of a porcelain toilet tank? No. 2 solution demands that the home diy repair person of the home obtain a plastic bag that is long-lasting of indefinite duration in time, to cover up the whole interior space of the toilet tank, with the bottom end of the bag resting on the bottom of the tank. There are I notice four holes on the bottom of the toilet tank: three small holes and one big hole: (a) The center big hole for the water to exit from the tank to pass to the toilet bowl and draw all the waste matters downward all the way to outside one’s home. (b) Two smaller holes between the center big hole for bolts to attach the tank to the rear portion of the toilet bowl, so that the tank is securely resting on top of the toilet bowl. (c) The side hole for the entrance of the water line from outside the tank to the interior space of the tank. The home diy repair person must therefore cut out from the bottom of the plastic bags these four holes which must align perfectly with the corresponding four holes on the bottom of the tank; at this point the repair man or woman can already return all the parts which were un-attached from the tank’s bottom for the repair operation to take place. Solution No. 2 is the most simple but requires patience and precision action from the home diy operator. And solution No. 2 is the most economical in term of money, but it takes a great deal of patience and precision workmanship from the diy home repair person. Of course if money is no concern to the homeowner because he has got plenty of it, then he just have to call up outside experts to replace the whole toilet bowl and tank assembly, to solve his problem of a leaking toilet tank in his home. But that means for the homeowner diy repair person, no joy of succeeding in the challenge to fix a leaking toilet tank without having to spend substantial money on it.
