Flushed with success

Yeah ... it's that kind of post ...

The toilet has been rather challenged lately. Actually, it just didn't have the "oomph" it used to have.

I'm thinking I need to call the plumber ... but the darn thing didn't seem to be clogged.

So I started perusing the internets (truly a wonderful invention!) and found a rather unusual tip: Check that little hole just below the opening where everything (eww) goes down. They tend to collect lime (or other mineral deposits) and close up.

I checked, and by golly, it was rather limed up. So I found a small metal rod (OK, I admit it, it was a broken radio antenna) and reamed it out.

Much better! Problem solved (at least for now).
