Toilet

Yesterday morning when I went into the bathroom, I started with my normal morning routine - the three S's (shit, shower and shave). But didn't get beyond the first one. When I sat down on the toilet, I put my feet in a quarter inch of standing water. Apparently overnight, my toilet had sprung a leak.

Great. Wonderful.

I sopped up the mess and reached around to see if I could tell where the leak was coming from. It felt like it was coming a seal around the base of the feed line, where the feed line connects to the plastic cap that connects to the float valve.

As the toilets in this house break, I've been replacing the float valves and stoppers with more modern designs. So yesterday at lunch, I fixed the toilet by installing a new feed line and a new float valve. No more leaking water, no more random tank filling in the middle of the night either.

Finished wiring in the closet this morning. It turned out to be a bigger project than I was anticipating. Started last night identifying the outlets (when I initially wired the house back in 2007 when I bought it, I didn't do a good job of identifying the drops), putting them through the wall and punching down the keystones. This morning I made cables and connected everything up to the switch before work.
