A couple nights ago I started having toilet/sewer issues for the second time in less than a week. I called Roto Rooter out (also for the second time), hoping they were not going to charge me another $300.00 for their work...
After this second assessment, the Roto Rooter man suggested we get a new toilet. So that's what I did yesterday. I knew how to install the toilet because I learned how to do it a few months ago, BUT...previous idiots, er...owners of the house did something stupid with the ceramic tile around the toilet -- they put the toilet in first, and then tiled up to it...leaving a depression in the floor where the old toilet was. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?
It looks like I'll be taking out the bathroom tile. I wanted to eventually, but it looks like it will be done sooner than later. Add another one to the list of ever growing projects!
Regardless, I am mighty proud of myself for removing the old toilet and installing the new one. (Oh, and it even WORKS! Ha.)
