brass tank bolts? worlds oldest plumbing discussion - well not quite
i tire of trying to filter various tank bolt results for brass vs. brass plated and half the time the title is brass but the fine print is brass plated. I do wish that various ecommerce sites, including some purportedly aimed at plumbing professionals would get that straight.
Solid Brass bolts are findable in spite of said difficulties, but the question that emerges is which sets of nuts and washers (and sometimes tank gasket) are most appropriate. Many are delivered with thin nuts, maybe to save money or because close coupled arrangements don't provide much space between the tank and bowl for a the nut that holds the bolt in the tank and secures the rubber washer primarily to prevent leak/drips, although i think the nuts will actually sit down into the holes cast in the bowl as i think about it. If there aren't functional barriers, I prefer a higher nut.
I can buy the bolts with nothing, just straight bolts, then i have to decide what hardware to stock with them and i'm reduced to considered whether to use brass or stainless steel nuts. I stock stainless flange nuts which would be nice, they just stand the hex way away from the porcelain for easy wrench access. But there is some distance between stainless and brass on the galvanic chart so maybe that is defeating the purpose and i should stick to brass.
emperical or abstract thoughts welcome.
