I have been busy trying to get things done around the house. But as always something always pops up.
The toilet in my bathroom always took forever to fill. I tried a few things but couldn't fix the problem. The other morning I went in to take a shower and the toilet was running. Now it never took that long. So I took off the lid and started to play around. I got it to stop. After a while I went in to gather towels for laundry and the darn thing was running again without having been used. More playing around but nothing. So I shut off the water to the toilet. And was using the one in the front of the house. But at night I am not going to walk all the way there(76') I would be wide awake by then. So I let the toilet fill up and shut the water back off. This was getting to be a real pain. It didn't even start as a slow running but a full pouring of water over the over flow. So this morning I caught the handyman and he checked it out and said when he had a break in his schedule he would come back.
Also the light switch that kept shutting off. I had already bought a replacement as I could do this myself usually. So I showed it to Mark and he said this isn't going to work it is for 3 different lights. I guess I wasn't wearing my glasses when I bought it.
So he was back soon as he had to wait for some flooring guys to finish an area he is working on. I asked him why the water flow was so slow and he showed me the part that caused this problem. I said I wondered if that was the cause but I didn't know what to do with it. He couldn't understand why anyone would put something like that on in the first place. Sure is nice not to have to wait forever for the toilet to fill up and for the light not to turn off by itself.
Maybe tomorrow I'll get around to shampooing the carpets.
Good Night All
