|In response to Re: TOILET - Better description of problem.|
OK it's a lot clearer now! It's still hard to make a judgement without seeing the part. But....The function of this portion of the bowl is to guide the water into the floor flange. It is not usualy submerged in water for any length of time although it is permanently damp.
A good grade of epoxy putty may withstand these conditions.
Clean the broken surface, first with hot soapy water and a stiff brush, then hot water, then laquer thinner. Scrape the broken surface hard with an old screwdriver.
mix the putty and apply it to the broken surface. mold it by hand to form a rough aproximation of the old lip.
Let it cure at least one day, two is better. Don't believe that "cures in 20 min" printed on the package.
Reinstall the toilet with a new wax ring. Shim the toilet so that it is rock solid and bolt it securely to the flange. Movement of the toilet bowl at some time is probably what broke the lip off to start with.
If this doesn't seem feasable then i'm probably still not visualizing the problem right.
