Bite the bullet. Kohler goofed with its own pressure assisted toilet, and it's now using the Sloan Flushmate, which also will need maintenance, though it's replaceable. Theye're plenty of good toilets out there, and $75 isn't much incentive to return to Kohler.
: Our Kohler Rialto Power-Lite (8 yrs old) has started
: leaking from its pressurized tank. I was told by Kohler
: that this could not be fixed and I would have to buy
: a new toilet. A plumber told me the same thing!
: Why can't this toilet be repaired?
: Kohler apparently stopped manufacturing pressurized tanks
: themselves and will only give us a $75 rebate if we physically
: take the Rialto toilet to the original place of purchase
: and purchase a new Kohler. This sounds ridiculous to me
: since they apparently knew that they had designed a toilet
: that was not meant to last and now I have to 1) hire
: a plummer to take out the faulty toilet 2)haul it down to
: Home Depot (who said that they don't want the toilet)
: 3) purchase a new toilet by a manufacturer know to make
: toilets that don't last long and 4) call the plumber
: back to install the new toilet!
