Yeah, me either. I can fix a toilet handle though!

Heh.

I can replace a toilet flapper!

Unfortunately, after all that, it was not the flapper that was leaky, but looks to be the flush valve.

Know what this means? Yup! I have to remove the freaking tank.

Re: Heh.

Oh, that's what I meant. The thing you push to make the water go away. That has the chain attached. And the tank, now ew. My hands were blue/black with grease and 2000 flushes. That was fun to get off my hands.

Re: Heh.

Nah, the flush valve is something different than the handle you push to drain the tank. The flush valve is what actually drops the water from the tank into the bowl -- it's what the overflow tube is connected to.

You can see a good diagram at http://www.eweb.org/water/repair/flapper.html

Re: Heh.

Ok, yeah. I had to replace the Flush Lever, chain and the flapper. Which wasn't too terrible, but was messy. But hey, it's a toilet!
