While your at it buy a new flapper and chain just to have in stock because these things always break when you have a house full company on Thanks giving or xmas, have a spare is priceless.

Having the new flapper on hand is a great idea. I've mentioned before that I work for the water utility here and when that flapper starts letting water seep through your water bill is going to go through the roof.

People I know have a huge house with six bathrooms. They phoned me at 10. pm one night because a toilet broke and they had a house full guests. I told them to fix it with a peice of masking tape and felt pen. When they asked how, I told them to put the tape on the door and write closed on it.
