The 310 ball cracking goes back more than 5 years, I learned this the hard way long ago with a crack just like the original photo. Toilet is just throw away junk.


I had never heard of it til it happened to me. I have been on several Forums for many years.

Mine is 5 years old. I wonder if it’s something that has been updated.

I was very pleased my repair worked so well.

Did you try something else or did you go back with the same 310?

I did mine on the road last year, Aqua Magic died leaking on the floor. New 310 $150-200 why mess with it? BTW I would never go back to the Aqua Magic the 310 actually flushes.

I am NOT a tight wad. BUT I sure don't like to replace anything if I can fix it.

My Superglue fix worked until a couple weeks ago. I am now at my home base and thought about removing the toilet but instead I turned off the water to toilet and reached in and cleaned off the bottom of the "BALL". I then put s few ounces of LocTite PL3 in my gloved hand and placed an even layer on the bottom of the ball. I let it dry for a couple days but when I really let it slam the cured pc separated and was inside the tunnel so I reached down and removed it.

Not giving up yet!!! I cleaned the bottom again then scrubbed it with emory cloth then cleaned with Acetone. I mixed up JB weld and smeared a thick layer on bottom of ball. Let it set overnight. I have been using it and snapping ball into place for over a week now!!!

NEVER GIVE UP!!!
