07:30 pm - Well, crap. Pun not intended.
Hey, look! It's another one of those days where I seem to have done everything wrong!

The crowning achievement today? The toilet started to leak, so (after many trips to Lowes: I may have spent more on gas than on parts) I replaced nearly every part of the damn thing.

Now, I have a tiny drip-drip-drip sort of leak that, while much smaller (maybe a tablespoon in a half-hour), doesn't make me feel any better about my situation. Home improvement is apparently not my forté this weekend, because it's not the only project that didn't go well.

I need a vacation from everything.

Let me know if you need a hand.

I might. Will drop you a note tomorrow. I'm dissatisfied (clearly) with the amount of work vs. reduction of leakage.

On the bright side, my house won't flood over the next 24 hours.

Pipe dope on the threads of the compression fittings? Tell me precisely where its leaking and I can make suggestions that might save you some angst. Good Luck

Good question. That's part of what I cannot quite tell. But it appears to be the cone gasket, or possibly the gasket under the flapper.
