This was the final blow for this toilet and off we went to a big box store to get a new one. We had replaced the toilet in our master bath with an American Standard Cadet 3 Right Height Elongated toilet. It had been recommended to my parents by their plumber, so we went with that one. Jolly Green Daddy and I installed it on our own and knew we could do it again. So when we went to get our new one we were looking for the same toilet. We found the same toilet and it's "brother" with a dual flush.

So we brought home our new dual flush toilet and waited for the kids to go to bed. We were getting ready to install our new toilet. We took out the old one and found that the flange that the new one was going to be attached to was broken. It looks like when they redid our tile floor they broke it! And just did what they could to make work. Grrrrr...
Looks like another trip to the hardware store. JGD comes back with a new flange and a repair kit. When we look at what we have in the floor, we finally decide that it is time to call a plumber. Ugh! So now we are waiting for a plumber to come and fix our flange and install our new toilet. And Sprout is wondering why the potty is in the backyard.
So my question is, what do you do around the house and what do you call/hire someone to do for you?As I discussed above, I do most of the minor plumbing in the house and electrical. When it comes to rewiring, repiping, flooring and other complicated tasks, I call someone.
