I just single-handedly fixed our toilet!!! For over a year there has been a constant trickle in the potty. It was enough to drive you batty!! The hubby - who is great and awesome and wonderful - never seemed to find the time to fix it. So, picture this:
I'm sitting on the bathroom counter inspecting my face - suddenly I'm hitting puberty. Icky pimples. As I'm staring at my pores in the bathroom mirror the sound of the trickly toilet is getting on my last nerve.
So, I take the lid off the tank...inspect the inner workings. I compose a theory - it has to be that ball thingy on the rod that is making the water trickle through. So...I go to the second bathroom - we never use it - take the ball thingy on the rod off (and wedge a piece of Styrofoam under the whatcahmacallit to stop the water from running.) I put in on our toilet -
I make the entire situation 10x worse!!! So then I decide it's the whatchamacallit that is the problem so I put a tampon - yes, a tampon under the whatchamacallit to stop the water from flowing, run to the back bathroom, get THAT whatchamacallit (after spending 10 minutes looking for a screw driver) turn off the water to that toilet and put it on our toilet.
VOILA!!No more trickle!!
I blame these escapades on the fact that I got two hours of sleep last night. Insomnia + old episodes of SVU kept me up 'til 3:30. Sleep deprivation = super plumber!!! Oh yeah!!!!
Happy Friday, ladies!!!!
