My toilet sprung a leak! I am not a fixit kind of gal. I can maybe fix basic computer issues on a PC (sorry mac users...YOYO) But to do something that is like...handy...well I am not Rosie! But I also don't have $55 to fish out so someone can come in and fix it in 5 minutes. So I was chatting away with my mom telling her that the tank appeared to be leaking from the side. She said to turn off the water and flush the toilet. Check. I couldn't see anything that would indicate a leak, and I don't care if it is the tank water, it is still part of a TOILET! I am not a toilet touchin' gal.
I am getting frustrated by the whole thing! I can't afford a house call! So whatever inspired me to do it, I turned the water back on, flushed and watched the tank fill up...
See where it says FILL CUP and FILL TUBE? Well the fill tube in my tank had disconnected from the fill cup and the water was just shooting across the tank. So I turned the water off and reconnected the fill tube and POOF Viola! My tank did not leak anymore! Thank you, thank you!
It's amazing what we can do. Have you ever amazed yourself?
