Warning: if toilet talk bothers you, please skip to the next paragraph.
This morning I tackled a few projects including special toilet cleaning. Our “ball” that closes the hole and keeps water in the toilet is not closing properly, thus water leaks out of our toilet bowl. Not a good thing for the seal. With gloves on I checked the ball’s surface-no calcium deposits I could feel. Then I checked the seal, none there either. The seal also seemed to be well attached to the bowl. I also got tie downs attached to our toilet brush, then knowing it won’t fall into our black water tank, I scrubbed below the ball. Unfortunately, our toilet ball still sticks and the water still leaks. A good temporary aid is, after stepping on the lever to flush, we need to push the lever up, to help the ball set firmly against the seal so water won’t escape the bowl. By the way, the reason for the tie downs is to slip that tie down handle over my wrist, thus no fears that it will fall into the black water tank).
Beautiful day when we spent most of the afternoon visiting with Renee. During that time “their” little resident turtle took a small walk, at least until one of us stood up. He’s so cute!
