Had To Pull the Wife's Chain Just a Little


The wife is away for a couple days so yesterday I put a new pressure switch on the water well ( with DIY help from rjniles ) so she wouldn't have to go a half mile down to the river for water when she returns.

Today was somewhat different in that she has wanted a new toilet in her bath for quite some time. She didn't know I had the supply house set one in the back of the Tundra a few days ago, including seat of course.

Now for the rest of the story said Paul Harvey -

I text her this pic and stated that seats don't come with new toilets and they are an extra. Are you sure you need a seat? If you are sure I can make another 70 mile round trip and get one.

To the best of my knowledge that woman has never answered a text so fast in her life.

Her Quote: " SEATS ARE MANDATORY "

Rolling on the floor and can hardly wait to tell the kids.

I would be careful about the term pulling her chain as that could in deed pull her chain.

You know your going to pay for that..., probably when you least expect it.

You might want to price out the toilet seat with either a soft close feature or an auto close capability.

Or just mount the old one in the Dog House... you might be spending some time out there.

I may have really screwed up being I already donated the old one to a thrift store.

We bought a house once that came with a padded seat in the ensuite. At the time I thought 'what a gimmick', but came to love it. If you are a 'reader', it helps keeping your butt from going numb.

Re: Had To Pull the Wife's Chain Just a Little


I changed toilets to one of the Niagara toilets (another thread). Really love the flushing capability at .8 GPF. I didn't like the slammer seat, so I installed the one off the one going to the dump. It was American Standard (Seat, not toilet). BUT it was 1/2" shorter than the bowl's edge. You would have thought I was a sexist, male chauvinist pig or something (I am, but that's beside the point). "Women don't like the bowl to extend past the seat" WHAT??

So back to the Depot with my measuring tape to buy a slow closer with just the correct length to cover the edge of the bowl. Sheesh !!
