  • Murphy's law

    I get home from my adventures @ WALMART, and my washing machine decides to crap the bed. The boilers at the wall don't want to hold,no room to get to anything, and I figure you are here you might as well do it right. Go to town pick up new washer,(check)I had better replace those boiler drains while I have the room(check) as I am turning the 1st boiler off teh back up wrench slips and off comes the mip and boiler!!!!Life sucks at this point of the game. Sprint outside kill the house supply,mop up the mess,(god am I glad my wife is out of town.)open wall, make repair.(check)Install new washing machine.(finally check)I am done,from now on if I need work done at my house, I calling the neighbor hood handy man.I hate working on my stuff this stuff always happens to me.

    I hear ya.

    I just installed a new Toto Soiree that has a sneaky tank to bowl leak in my house, unfortunatley I don't have the parts to fix it and it's in our master bath. So the dripping is about driving us insane.

    My wife must think I'm a real idiot.

          It "works". I just don't like it.

          1.28 GPF

          See those sides/bolt covers? Ceramic that you are instructed to silicone on.

          And the fill valve CANNOT be removed without removing the tank. I think Rick first pointed one out that TOTO makes.

          Plus the tank to bowl bolts are a b!@!h! to get too.

          Dumb, dumb, dumb.

              tool, not only was i right i also wrote a whole thread about it and warned everyone about it.

              i even got stuck a couple months back and had to install 2 more for a customer. i warned him before i started and then after they both had factory issues, i told him, see i told you so

              then i called toto and gave them a piece of my mind

              of couse i didn't tell them that i already wrote a post about this model. i figured they already knew about it.

              next time tool, trust me i can use the steaks

                    Re: Murphy's law

                    Murphy's law is an adage or epigram that is typically stated as: "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong".
                    It is used as either a purely sarcastic musing that things always go wrong, or, less frequently, a reflection of the mathematical idea that, given a sufficiently long time, an event which is possible (non-zero probablity) will almost sure. Although, in this case, emphasis is put on the possible bad occurrences.
