  1. Found a video for changing worn out canister gasket on Kholer tank. I have always done handy work, but I had never seen one of these before, and in these times, I am likely to make a small task into a catastrophe. I did a search, found your video for this exact tank, got the exact right part, and fixed it without breaking anything. It may seem a small thing, but I am truly grateful for the help, and for the way a simple gift of your time can make such a difference to a man a long way from home. —Scott. Portland, OR
