the joy of plumbing

devoted readers of this blog will recall the immense satisfaction i take from returning my toilet to normal function. i must commend all party guests of last night; everyone dealt with the vagaries of my disintigrating chain and flapper with aplomb. i knew i needed to replace that bit of the toilet before the party and it was one of the many things i planned but never did.

such a simple mechanism, really. replacing it was a pain, but not difficult, if that makes sense. startling the difference the new one makes.

i suppose the next thing to go will be the wax ring; i don’t look forward to that operation.
