Ha ha ... He Said Ballcock
As I mentioned, our toilet was running.
Last weekend, I went down to OSH and picked up a new ballcock which I had decided was the problem. Why did I think that? I looked in one of our home-repair books, and that seemed a likely candidate.
I went with the Korky QuietPlus. Sure, it costs a little more, but why be cheap with your toilet?
Halfway through the installation, I realized that I had done this before, a couple times at PaceHouse 1.0. So, things went smoothly.
Once the part had been replaced, I turned the water back on (then tightened the dripping hose) and flushed. Everything worked well, except it still ran.
So, it was the flapper. I sent RKCP to get one (another fine Korky product!), and we've been flushing just fine ever since. Except the othe leaking hose, which I fixed that night.
