|the mini tank inside the bigger one|
|now there are two!|
We were misled. We have had nothing but problems with that thing for seven years. And as other people in our region began reporting on how bad these things are, and contractors began blaming them for all sorts of system-wide plumbing problems (especially in multi-story buildings), we began to despise our throne.
|scraping up old sealant|
We replaced the toilet seat at least once. We replaced the flushing handle twice. And then, the float valve in the tank failed... almost two months ago. The lid came off. We were instructed to wait after use for the tank to fill, and make sure the float valve shut off the water. Then we were instructed to make sure the tank even sealed for filling. It was all becoming ridiculous, and we'd forget to mention to guests what the problem was. I can just imagine the anxiety of sitting there, not knowing what part has failed and how it will affect your resting experience. I can imagine it because I was experiencing it every day.

And of course, nothing can be done out here without a bit of humor!
