About Us

This Old Toilet is a small sole proprietorship operated by Gary Tjader since 2003. Gary's entire business life has been in plumbing materials supply beginning as a summer warehouse helper at a wholesale plumbing supply company in San Francisco in 1969. The company, a Kohler distributor,  was founded by his grandfather in 1933. Gary's earliest jobs were newspaper boy, Elk's Club bus boy, and Fuller Brush man.



We operate from a small office, warehouse and yard in Mountain View, California. Callers often wonder where this is, so I say, "In-between Google, Facebook and Apple." 

We fulfill orders for new products from distribution centers, manufacturers, and warehouses all over the country. Salvaged items, such as tanks and tank lids, typically come from our own local inventory.
