A fix merely removed the mask of other problems.
The toilet has been flushing itself for awhile. I've been in denial about it, until yesterday.
If Nationwide Arena did not charge $10 for parking for a Ohio State Hockey game I may not be making this entry today. I do not like paying for parking, but $10 for a game that costs $11 for a ticket is pretty ridiculous.
So I was home yesterday afternoon, and bought new fixtures for the toilet yesterday morning. That's what I did, instead of going to the hockey game.
It took less that 45 minutes to install the new valve and flapper. There was little cursing. The toilet flushed when you flushed it, and that's all. Not a bad job for someone who is not mechanically inclined.
Later, we went out to dinner. When we came home there was audible dripping in the kitchen and a ceiling tile was soaked through.
There has been a minor drip coming from the bathroom pipes for a long time. The tile was not in perfect shape. The work I did though seemed to take away one problem and cause a faster drip in the pipe.
It's not raining in the kitchen but it's annoying.
