A few months ago, the only toilet in my house decided to leak onto the floor. Seems the tank cracked at one of the fittings underneath. We hated the toilet anyway because it was a first generation "water saver" toilet that needed to be flushed multiple times to clean out the bowl and it constantly got plugged up. All the fixtures in the bathroom are 1990's "sand" color, so I scoured all the home center websites to find a new toilet in the proper color. Meanwhile, we had to flush the toilet by filling a bucket in the bathtub and pouring into the bowl. Got a new one at Lowe's and hired a local pro plumber to install. This new toilet actually WORKS! And I am glad that I had a pro install it. I think you will be glad also that you got a pro to put yours in. It looks easy on "This Old House", but in a small bathroom, it is a difficult job.

Not too bad of a job, but I can't figure out why it is still leaking down after taking it apart a second time and examining all the new parts.

It's leaking thru a crack or groove or something not fitting exactly right. And it is frustrating to track it down. Replacing parts isn't too bad, I've done that. but replacing the whole toilet is a much harder job, at least for me. They are heavy and awkward to lift and move and they have no great "handles" or holding places.

Mine has a separate tank, Remove it 1st after vacuuming the water out of the tank, then use the tank hole to lift the bowl up. They will do this.

Cleaned up the pergola area and the grill for this Sunday BBQ. Also used the pressure washer on the Cub parts (they will need a lot more cleaning). Did some re arranging to make room for the tow behind mower so I can go over it in the Shop A/C.

Dealing with bees in the water meter box again. I removed the lid (with a loooong pole) and tripped over my self getting away as a large cloud appeared. Hope they move on now,

Bee update, they are still here. They are not aggressive so I'll let them take their time to find a new home. I did taste the cone, and it is solid wax, no honey.

I had set up the Go-pro and was filming in delay mode for about 3 hours. I went down to check and they were still there, The battery was flashing red, so I took the camera to the shop and swapped batteries. Decided to download the camera, couldn't have been 10-15 minuets and when I returned they were gone. (Bummer)

I saw some scouts flying around. Not sure where they went, but was disappointed I didn't get the swarm on video.

I am going to JB Weld the hole in the little access door shut. It was only used to read the meter, the meter is now electronic and read from the road. The lid will still be removable.
