Toilet Tank Lid Is Broken


toilet tank lidHere is a job for most any homeowner. People get curious, and in this economy, lots of homeowners will attempt to at least understand what is broken and then give it the old college try to repair it themselves before calling for help.

People will remove the toilet tank lid to peek inside, especially if the tank is hissing or leaking water. This is when the lid gets damaged.

A toilet tank lid is glossy and can be slippery, especially if the toilet's fill valve is spraying water on it. It is common that they can slip and fall out of your hands and break. Equally as common is leaning the lid against the wall and it slides down the floor and cracks.

You can get a generic toilet tank lid at most home centers, usually only in white. If you have a tank that has an unusual shape it probably won't fit very well. The generic lids are a basic rectangular shape with rounded corners. It will fit most tanks, but may hang over the sides a little too much. Your only option at this point is to special-order a lid from a plumbing supply house, or replace the entire tank.
