Happy (edited) Tuesday Potty Tale


Early December our guest toilet was making crazy swishing noises in the middle of the night.  Did we have a ghost upstairs?  We did not want SIS and BIL of Angel Madi awakened by this when the came for Christmas.
  I called Midtown Plumbing.  I told the lady it was flushing randomly all by itself.
Tim the plumber took off the tank top, flushed it several times.  Finally he said
your tank is leaking 😱😰. Not something you want to hear about second floor toilet.
What ???we haven't seen any water on the floor.
No not that kind of leak. 
Turns out the water in the tank was leaking into the bowl, of course using extra water. The swish was the tank auto refilling itself when it got below the minimum water line.
  Tim assured me it would work fine. We just needed to make sure to keep the tank level at the maximum line.
We live smack in the middle of the City. However, nothing says Red Neck Christmas better than asking your visitors to do routine potty maintenance.  I had a pitcher on the tank.  Favorite SIL of Angel Madi took on the task of filling the tank a couple of times a day.  

FULL DISCLOSURE!!!

You know I'm shameless.  Angel Madi and  I would do anything to enhance a story!!!
I had photos of our vintage 1983 model and sleek, trim and taller 2019 model and a seven second video of the soft close potty in action.
When I told my editor (aka Dad of Madi),
about the post, photos and video..he immediately switched from  editor to manners police.
He asked  "are you really gonna post photos of the toilet"?! Yes I replied... I got a soft humph from the manners police.  Alas dear readers, you must use your mind's eye instead of using photos.

Any complaints regarding this censorship, should be sent to

HAPPY NEW YEAR'S EVE TO YOU ALL

    BOL MOL LOL... well, I might just contact the manners police, cuz I would have been interested!!! Did the plumber not put a new seal on the plunger for you? I've done that fix myself in the past, but some modern toilets have got ridiculously complicated plunge systems nowadays... to keep 'the punters' in their place and have to get the pros in!!!

    Hope you flush through to the New Year in fine style. Much love and hugs to you both. YAM xx

  2. Well that was all very interesting, even without the pictures.
    Gail has just reminded me that my Nature Friday post, which I've already prepared for this week, might not pass the manners police, being somewhat related to toilet matters (or 'bathroom' matters, as I believe is the polite way to say it in your country...)
    Toodle pip!

  3. We have had that issue too. New innards for the potty tank does the trick very nicely☺

  4. Well I say the manners police should'be kept busy looking elsewhere. I know dad's made me post some, shall we say, risqué-ish things in the past, but come on, we're (mostly) adults here, right? Dad finished reading this and mumbled that he's done this fix gazillions of times. Maybe do a re-post down the road when the manners policeman is busy, say, on the toilet or something? How fitting, huh? Anyway, here's to a very Happy New Year from me and dad, and hope that 2020 turns out to be a good one.

  9. Sometimes there is sediment build-up at the bottom of the tank that gets under the plug. Water slowly seeps around it. When the water level gets to a certain point, the tank will automatically refill. Just clean out that sediment and the problem will be resolved.

  23. We have the same problem. However, we have opted to live with it for a while. I did try to send an email of protest to your editor, but the address was no good. He probably gave you a fake one because he knew of the outrage of censorship. HAPPY NEW YEAR.

  24. Mystery toilet noises drive me nuts! It’s usually the plug in the tank not sealing properly that makes noise for us. Madi’s dad sounds like he edits/proofreads like the Bayou Boys’ dad! I’m also shameless! LOL!!

  25. We would enjoy the potty pictures MOL We wish you a very Happy Mew Year
