and exploding toilets!
Tonight we have one of Darly's friends staying over. DH & I were downstairs talking when she flushed the toilet. We heard a very weird noise followed shortly by both girls screaming!
We ran upstairs and DH found the tank of the toilet spewing water. The girls assumed that this was all water out of the bowl and were totally grossed out, but it was all fresh tank water.
At first (after shutting off the water!) we thought that somehow the float valve had just worked itself off and once that was screwed back on would work fine...but alas cheap plastic parts don't last so well. It seems that the float valve is toast as well as the connection from the wall to the tank...the water intake valve may be toast too. ugh!
Now I have a load of towels to wash. Fun! Any ideas on when my house is going to stop breaking?
