They were all malfunctioning. They were gutted and given new innards. Now they are fabulous. No more floats or contentious valves. No more leaving the lids off and pulling up on the float bar or shoving the ballcock back and forth to get the water to stop filling or avoiding using one or the other.
Estimates of $975 (OMG), $430 + extraneous towel and scrap removal fees (wtf?) and one for waaaaaaaaaay less. I chose the waaaaay less one. The don’t charge for crap like towels they don’t use or insist on installing only gold plated assemblies or whatever it is that costs almost $1000 dollars.
Working toilets are a joyous thing.
The thought overrides the usual misery I feel watching cold rain splattering against the window right now.
Tomorrow there will be more cold rain and wind.
But I have good working toilets. I will be happy and smile.
