Your Toilet Tank Lid Is Cracked - Basic Home Repairs
There are basically four parts to almost any toilet. The
first and the largest would be the toilet bowl and this is the area that
you will be depositing your waste directly into, the next will be the
toilet tank which is the area that holds the water, before the toilet is
flushed and is usually located on top of the toilet bowl.
Then we have the toilet seat which is the part of the toilet that you actually sit on, while making your deposits into the toilet. The last part of the toilet, besides all of the movable components that are located within the toilet tank, will be the toilet tank lid.
It's not uncommon to find a damaged toilet tank lid. The biggest problem becomes finding a replacement. There is more than one way to damage one of these lids and once they are damaged, there is a good chance that you will need to replace the entire toilet.
It's often hard to find an exact toilet lid replacement. However, sometimes you can actually replace the toilet tank and save yourself a couple of dollars. If you're toilet lid is cracked, I recommend taking a damaged item down to your local home improvement center or plumbing supply warehouse to find a replacement.
You might need to buy the entire toilet tank, even if you don't need a new tank. These toilet tank lids often aren't sold separately. I would recommend purchasing the toilet tank and storing in safely, just in case you're toilet tank ever has problems.
Hopefully you will never need to replace the toilet tank, however it would provide you or your family and friends with a spare toilet tank if needed.
