Winner of Blog Hop - Toilet Backup



I have a winner for my giveaway on the Rush Hour Blog Hop.  As soon as she gets back to me with her information I will share the news with all of you.  Again I hope you all enjoyed this hop, I thought is was great.

On another note,  This morning I notice that it seem we were having problems with the bathroom toilet backing up and going into the tub.  I had Tom to call the Plummer to take a look at it.

It was more of a problem then either of us thought, after sneaking the tub and the toilet which was all together $300 (hit my fabric money pretty hard) the flush valve spring was broken.  Because this is a special type of mechanism it can only be ordered.  The piece is only $14.00 and will take a week on the fastest delivery they have.

I feel like flushing me down the sewer.  I will be going to the basement during the day and once I in bed at night and have to go I will have to do it the old fashion way.  Not even going to write about it.

Flushing through the week

  1. I can relate to the problem, but luckily just a leaky seal on the tub.

  2. Oh, no! You could write a whole separate blog about toilets and the trouble they cause you! :-)

  3. My goodness! Having a plumbing problem is never any fun.

  4. Oh yes, the dreaded toilets, I know them sew well! Mine talked to themselves. I let the plumber listen over the phone, and he had me call the manufacturer. They kindly sent me the parts for free but would of charged him, go figure.

  5. Ugh!!! I hate plumbing problems. Good luck.
