While we were away on vacation, I got a call from our babysitter that our toilet broke. I practically wanted to freak out because this is the third time this month that the toilet broke. The first two times my daughter ended up clogging the toilet by putting too much toilet paper in, and we could not unclog it. We ended up calling Professional Plumbers to come and take a look. They told us that the toilet bowl most likely would need to be replaced but they would temporarily fix it for us. Low and behold, two months later, it did end up breaking again, just as they said. We had to resort to buying a new toilet bowl but now, I think we are in the home clear.
While the toilet bowl is fixed, we are now having problems with the leaky faucets. When we first moved in the house, we were told that they just had all the facets fixed, as they had leaking problems as well. It got so bad in the house, that the bathroom facet caused a leak that ended up flooding the bathroom overnight. Lucky for us, we never had that extensive of a problem, however, the facets have started to get leaky again. My husband and I tried tightening them but to no avail, they still leak. It truly is frustrating especially when I hear the pitter-patter of the facet all night long. My husband can sleep through an earthquake but the littlest sounds bother me. I need those facets fixed and I need it done quickly. I guess it is time to call the plumber again!
While I know that appliances break in houses, I just thought we had a few more years before we had to do complete appliance renovations. It is expensive and I was hoping to hold off. I know the time has come to make some changes though! I can’t go one more day with another broken appliance.
Have you had extensive plumbing issues in your house? Can you relate? Do you have a newer or older house?
