We have had a high water bill since August! Over $100 a month for the last 5 months is quite alarming. I first thought it was from our pool. But then the fall came and still the water bill was high! I told my husband it was probably our toilet that had been making noise. He said no probably not from the toilet ( I was right of course...lol)....so we called our home warranty and they sent some guy from Elite Home Renovations out to check for leaks and we paid a $75 deductible for him to tell us the pump in our toilet had broken and he put in a new pump. Then the toilet still ran and so he came back and put in a new plug. The toilet still ran and the Home warranty informed me on the phone that if the problem was different than the original diagnosis we would be charge an additional $75. We figured if they sent the guy out again and he fixed something else on the toilet only to have it run again we would be out of luck and another $75. Since toilets are only $90 at Lowes we decided to just go ahead and buy a new toilet. Installation was another $90 and so then Chris decided he would install the toilet himself......and after about 2 hours he did! So proud of him!
He needed the hacksaw because the bolts on the old toilet were so rusted they would not unscrew.
