Why I’m writing about this I’m not entirely sure, other than it’s really the little “wins” that are quite satisfying.
My main think tank was on the fritz. It was getting super bad — The water would keep running after the flush. bad bad. Couldn’t stop it, no matter how much handle jiggling. This is a major trauma for the household. Our master eliminator is just not working right.
So I donned gloves and went in for some exploratory surgery. Come to find out it was the rubber thingy at the bottom that opens and closes when you use the handle and normally closes the tank to let it fill after a flush — It about disintegrated when I took it off of the whatzit.
So I went to the other can in the bedroom, which I never use, turned off the water, extracted it’s rubber thingy, which was still in good shape, and transplanted said thingy to the main, yet now lobotomized crapper.
I can now poop in peace.
