Did you know that just having a plumber snake your toilet costs $180? I didn’t have him do it though because it looks like the culprit pink sparkle bouncy ball wouldn’t come out anyway. So it looks like we’ll be getting a new basement toilet. Guess how much? $550.00 For something to which you do unspeakable things.
While he was here I had him peek at a nuisance leak in another bathroom. I mean it drips maybe twice per day. Let me tell you friends: what appears minor often is not, especially when it comes to plumbing. The tank of that toilet is cracked – hence the leak – and at any moment could crack fully open. A previous owner apparently tried to fix it by slathering the interior of tank with plaster…do not do this or risk tremendous plumber outrage and wrath.
So. That’s two new toilets. $1100.00 One thousandy-dy one hundred clams. I was expecting more like $300.00 for tightening a bolt and resetting a toilet. So why not go for the gusto? How about these?
Looks like it’s time to sell a kidney.
