Toilet

Hi loves,

It was a very nice weekend here at the Lee-Martin homestead.  I realized that the downstairs toilet was leaking water onto the floor last night - so I took it apart to replace the wax ring.  This was my taking the toilet apart last night...



This morning, I installed a new wax ring and put the whole toilet together again when I realized that the screws used to hold the toilet to the floor had become dislodged.  I read on the internet how to prevent this from happening - I needed a second set of nuts to hold the bolts to the flange - this wasn't in the package, I needed to find my own extra ones.  I then took it apart again, installed a second new wax ring and then shimmed the toilet so it didn't rock.  Hopefully no more leaks.  I want you to know I didn't spend all weekend working on plumbing, though I do enjoy it.

get down with your bad self Doris!! The only thing I could fix would be a sandwhich for the plumber.
