Everyone needs to know how to do basic repairs and toilets are a good start

Posted by Tyra Hatcher Mitchell, Southern Maine Realtor (Alliance Realty) almost 2 years ago

Thanks for sharing this handy tip on fixing something that happens to all of us

Lisa, I know my limitations, when I need gardening work I call my Gardner, when I need plumbing work I call my plumber and the list goes on and on, :)) I watched a five min video on how to replace a broken glass on your stove, I watched it ten times and decided to call a handyman and it took him an hour:))Endre

I agree Tyra Hatcher Mitchell knowing the basics is a good thing!

Calling an expert is a good thing Endre Barath, Jr. we can't be an expert at everything!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago

Morning Lisa.

While I've tackled this in the past, now I would call an expert.  Sound simple however, with my mind set it would be a disaster

Posted by James Dray, Exceptional Agents, Outstanding Results (Fathom Realty) almost 2 years ago

Good choice.....as a FORMER landlady.....this issue can add considerably to a water bill !

Posted by Sally K. & David L. Hanson, WI Realtors - Luxury - Divorce (EXP Realty 414-525-0563) almost 2 years ago

I have done repairs such as these too many times to remember.  This is a great video though for those who don't know how their toilets work.

Lisa I make sure the most important seat in the house is always in top working order

And there is never anything wrong with calling in the professionals James Dray !

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago

Lisa, I feel the same way, like trying to sell your home call a professional:) do not attempt it yourself:)Endre

Posted by Endre Barath, Jr., Realtor - Los Angeles Home Sales 310.486.1002 (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices) almost 2 years ago

Hi Lisa - Home Depot has son very good instructions.  I do my own toilet repairs.

Hi, thanks for sharing this.

Posted by Golden1 Agents almost 2 years ago

This is certainly helpful information to share with home owners.

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) almost 2 years ago

Hi Lisa... I totally know how to repair a toilet.... I call my plumber!  This kind of DIY is just not in my wheelhouse, but I know there will be many who will love this information.

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage ) almost 2 years ago

You do not want me to even try. If becomes more expensive if I do it.

Posted by Joe Pryor, REALTOR® - Oklahoma Investment Properties (The Virtual Real Estate Team) almost 2 years ago

Lisa, although this makes it sound really easy, I would have a HUGE water leak, and lead to more DIY repairs.  I will call my handyman!   

Posted by Joan Cox, Denver Real Estate - Selling One Home at a Time (House to Home, Inc. - Denver Real Estate - 720-231-6373) almost 2 years ago

Great post, but I will still call a plumber...it will be less expensive in the long run!  lol

Posted by Mary Murillo (Lisa Von Domek & Associates, LLC / Real Living Real Estate Group) almost 2 years ago

Sally K. & David L. Hanson if my husband can't get to it, I have my plumber on speed dial!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago

They are never fun to work on Gabe Sanders but it's nice to know how in an emergency!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago

Especially during the holidays George Souto you don't want plumbing issues!  

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago

If I have to deal with it, I call the plumber Endre Barath, Jr. if hubby is home, he's the one to handle it!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 2 years ago
