You know you own a house when you're attempting to snake out a toilet at midnight.

I didn't have much luck, though the non-draining toilet now is a slow-draining toilet, so I got a little function but fear I may have made the source of the problem more difficult.

In my vain attempts to do it myself I thought I'd remove the toilet tank for possible better access to the clog than snaking through the bowl. No dice. And for my efforts I now have a leak from one of the bolts that anchors the tank. Nice.

So, in the morning the professionals get called in to fix things, including those I broke.

At least I have a job interview on Friday.
Current Mood: crankycranky

Hope you don't get the one who keeps saying "Y'know, if you'd called me in the first place, this would have take ten minutes and cost you a heck of a lot less..."

I'm hoping it's more an issue of not having the right tool than any actual harm-doing on my part. (Though the tank maneuver was ill-advised. At least it should be a simple gasket fix.) We dealt with a plumbing company a few years ago and they were decent so I've given them a call again. Looks like it'll be around noon before things are in fully working order.

Not as a plumber, I hope!
