Got to use American Standard Toilet Warranty

About a month ago, Wife commented there was a hairline crack in the tank of our upstairs toilet... American Standard White, Tall, Elongated.
Bought from Lowes in 2013 when the house here was built.. I contacted builder who had the receipts, and they contacted Plumbing Subcontractor, to see about who to call, but plumber & Wife on vacation--Yeah it's the slow season...
