You might remember, earlier this week we had another issue with the toilet in our only bathroom.
A quick recap for those who missed out on the fun earlier this week.
Basically, Emmett flushed several, empty toilet paper rolls down the toilet. Now, in his defense, they had been collecting and proved to be a temptation that he simply couldn’t resist.
Anyway, this is the 2nd or 3rd time this has happened in the last few months.
I spent a good portion of the day plunging the crappie out of that toilet. Oh..look.. I made a funny 🙂
The plunger actually broke, so Elliott -who was still manic at the time- and I had to go buy a new one. Elliott at the store is tough on a good day. However, Elliott at the store while manic because of a bad reaction to Zoloft…. Well, I’ll leave that to your imagination.
But I digress…..
Back to the point.
Did you know that not all plungers work on all toilets? I found that out the hard way. The replacement plunger I bought didn’t work.
I ended up having to use the old, broken plunger. It actually worked after awhile. I managed to clear out most of. The cardboard from the back of the toilet.
Sadly, the damage had already been done.
When we flush the toilet now, it sounds like it’s gasping for air. It no longer rains on the parade, if you follow my drift.
I think whatever else he flushed is plugged up somewhere and it’s stopping the water from flowing through the system properly.
I’ll give you an example. Don’t worry, it will be a clean example.
Gavin blew his nose today and dropped the tissue into the toilet and flushed it. While the water in the toilet flushed away the tissue remained. There is simply no water coming down to whoosh the tissue away, so it just sticks to the side of the bowel.
I’m afraid that our toilet, when less than a year old, is in its final days.
RIP dear friend. As my good friend. Hank Hill would say, you provided us with 12 months of reliable service.
You will be missed. Unfortunately, I can’t pull the plug just yet, I need to interview for a replacement first.
