When the kids were living in this house, the old toilet “pooped out” and went into continuous flush mode and needed some attention. We bought several of the “universal fit” repair kits, but none of them actually fit, probably because the old fixture was a prototype for the new concept of indoor plumbing.
Anyway, we bought a new lo-water, lo-profile model and all should have been good. Except for the fact that it actually flushed “#1″ sort of haphazardly, and any deposit you could actually be proud of was at least a double flusher. All of that made the lo-water, environmentally friendly feature redundant. The only solution was a “How to Use the Plunger” poster displayed prominently on the bathroom wall.
The fact still remains, it’s a good looking, futuristic toilet. I’m sure if I could hook it up to the internet, or use a USB plug and connect it to my computer, I could download an important update that would actually make it functional. But alas, www. toilets-R-us.com seems to be down for the moment, so I need to revert to the old fashioned plunger and sewer snake method. Or perhaps a sledge hammer.
I’m leaning toward the sledge hammer at the moment…
