One of the toilets broke the other day.  Tank bolts rusted through, because they were iron.  Stupid.  So the toilets are non-standard, and I can't find replacement parts at Lowe's or Home Despot, or even online, because the mfg ate shit during the financial crisis, etc.  I can just find brass "Universal fit" stuff that ain't right, so I run with that.

Doesn't fit, doesn't seal.  WTF to do?  Hrm.. Aquarium sealer!  $10 at PetSmart.  Fucking magic!

Given one of the Universal brass fitting kits, and a toilet tank it doesn't seal:

1)  After removing the old hardware, scrub, scrub, scrub.  The bottom of the tank has to be as clean as you can get it.

2)  Let it dry, or the aquarium seal isn't going to adhere

3)  Seal

4)  After maybe 30 minutes, go in and pat it into the porcelain

5)  48 hour curing time to let the silicon set

6)  Crap in peace, because the combination of brass hardware and silicon seals mean that tank is better than what you had when you bought the house

Wait, what?!?

Friday Night Quotes

“We must not hate people who have done wrong to us. For as soon as we begin to hate them, we become just like them, pathetic, bitter, and untrue.”

-- Shakespeare

“Forgiveness looks beautiful on everyone.”

--Angel Nafis

“A real love letter is made of insight, understanding, and compassion. Otherwise it’s not a love letter. A true love letter can produce a transformation in the other person, and therefore in the world. But before it produces a transformation in the other person, it has to produce a transformation within us. Some letters may take the whole of our lifetime to write.”

--Thích Nhất Hạnh

“What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say.”

--Ralph Waldo Emerson
