On occasion, a toilet's drainage stopper can have a bit of floating problem, in that it won't be totally airtight. This will make the stopper float upward, causing water to continuously drain out of the tank. Enter scrub brush to save the day (and the water bill...)!
"Long story short. Toilet lift arm broke. Unusable for two weeks. I asked my husband to pleeeeease fix it. Came home to this... a giant hook in the wall and a bungee holding up the lift arm. Brilliant. All I need is a new husband and I'm good to go."
Let this be a warning to all of you non-toilet fixing husbands out there! Don't be naughty! Fix that potty!
