    Default Emergency Toilet Repair

    We had a few extra people over for the holiday and the toilet began to continually run, come to find out the handle had broke and either the chain would get caught under the flapper or the flapper would hang on the handle's bar. I couldn't put the toilet out of service on Thanksgiving With the handle broke the bar that lifts the flapper just falls.

    My quick and easy solution was to attach a bobber to the bar. Easy peasy, problem solved. I will buy a replacement handle or two, but I'm leaving it like this until it fails, to see how long it lasts.
