Yes, that is just like what my new one looks like. All the water is inside the device.

Progress?
That's why it's so loud.

Is this some kind of an early April Fools Day joke?

They are now selling toilets with hard plastic encased systems? So, if there is a problem, the consumer tosses the old plastic works and buys a whole new one??? Hopefully plastic casing can be recycled.

Congratulations to the inventor and marketing guru who thought this one up!! What a moneymaker!!!

Modern toilets, though now and then they cause trouble, are a fabulous invention. They are a product used 24/7 in most parts of the world and for the most part are very economical to use when you factor in the amount of use and the moving parts generally last a long time, although they have been cheapened down in recent years.

NYgal -- I am so glad it has finally been fixed!!!

On the subject of toilets and water, are you all following the Cape Town water crisis? A very serious situation...

I'm here to report that my new toilet works wonderfully well.

This may sound funny to others but believe me, until you can't flush yours properly, you won't appreciate one that does flush properly.

Been there, done that. I've replaced a few over the years.

Received a bit of "unofficial" good news today. I had an echocardiogram this morning and while it was being performed, the tech asked me my medical history and why I was having the echo done. I told her that in addition to having a mediastinal lymphoma that was treated with chemotherapy and radiation, I also had a free-floating mass in my left ventricle. She then asked if I had had it removed. I said no, and reiterated that I had gone through chemo and radiation. I then asked her if that meant it wasn't there any more. She sort of hemmed and hawed (because we both knew that she's not supposed to discuss the results with patients) before finally saying that she didn't see anything.

I'll have to wait until Tuesday for the official results as that is when I see my cardiologist, but I'm feeling reasonably confident about the outcome. Actually, next week is the big week because in addition to Tuesday's appointment with the cardiologist, Wednesday is the PET Scan to check the status of the main tumor as well as all my organs, and then Friday is the meeting with my oncologist.

Nope. You phone the manufacturer and if they're into honoring their warranties they send you replacement innards at their cost. We've changed the innards of each of our low-flow pressure toilets once each. And fully expect to do so again at some point in the future.

Also true of much plumbing, which I didn't know until DH tried it out. We had some pipes that were over 20 years old, that are original fittings in this condo. Since I'm still the original owner of the condo (and plumbing) the plumbing company sent us replacement parts at no cost.

And yes. California thought they had it bad (until last winter). But nowhere near as dire a situation as Cape Town seems to be. But then, Cape Town doesn't have the Colorado River to suck dry.

Great news, MMoB. US techs, while not radiologists, if they are experienced, know what they are looking at. Radiologists rely on their expertise many times. I hope the PET is good news. Iím being selfish, I want to hear about your planned trip afterward.
