The Throne

Twelve years ago there was remodel work done to both bathrooms in our house.  Installed in one bathroom was a new low-flow toilet that was supposed to be environmentally friendly.

It never made friends in OUR environment for several reasons:

#1.We had to keep a bucket and a plunger handy.  It was always getting plugged.
#2. There was no such thing as a one flush.  It always required two flushes to get the job done, and sometimes three.
#3.  It wobbled when you sat on it.

So now we have a toilet installed that is GUARANTEED to never get plugged.  The plumbers even said they would pay us $25 if it did.  

They also did some shimmy work so that it won't make you dizzy if you're planning a long visit.

So, Merry Christmas to me.

Isn't it amazing how such an ordinary, everyday object can have such a negative impact on our lives when it doesn't work correctly?!

(I hope Santa remembers to bring you something frivolous too!)

I had the same problem about four years ago, and got the turbo flush model. I love it and you will, too!

We have an "energy saving" toilet, but it flushes marvelously. My son managed to clog it up for the first time in 6 years this past weekend. I blame the boy more than the toilet....

:0 Some Christmas gifts are so practical they seem "un-gift-like" but you will enjoy this gift for years (hopefully!)

I remember my dad giving my mom some very unglamorous gifts - like a handcart - that she "grew" to love later on...
Well it will be an appreciated gift! :)

We also dislike the engergy-saver toilets, so when we recently did a remodel in our second bathroom, we asked the plumber to put "one of those old-fashioned toilets" back in. He knew just what we were talking about, so apparently we weren't the only ones who had made that request ;) Best wishes with the new model :)
