Leaning Tower Of Piss


This is what happens when you let me loose on a home improvement project. I took that old flusher out and put this one in, but there's something not quite satisfying about it.

Anyway, all good. It is leany, but it works.

The Dreaded One has just driven off to the remnants of a doof, I'll try to correct The Leaning Tower Of Toilet tomorow.

The spare bits on the toilet seat? Fucked if I know where they're supposed to go.

Deeply, deeply funny.

Deeply,deeply disturbing.. I don't think you can add 'plumber' to your list of credentials babe!

I should add here that it hasn't been bolted to the wall like this. I did all of this (and there was more involved than I was expecting) late-ish at night, the existing screws didn't line up and rather than disturb the neighbours by drilling into concrete walls when they were watching telly or trying to sleep, I just connected the pipes, discovered that it works and left it temorarily as you see it.

Mind you, I'm starting to quite like the look of it...

Update: Bloody hell. I definitely won't be adding plumber to my list of credentials. And if you found the post deeply funny, OE, you should have seen the near disaster that was this afternoon.

I dismantled, drilled into the tiles, re-assembled and fuck me where were the leaks coming from. It was like some kinda puzzle. A Rubic's cube with pipes and water. I'd punch the air in triumph and do a happy dance only to lunge for the main tap as another geyser appeared.

I would have given up and called a professional... but I hate admitting defeat. And besides, The Dreaded One would have laughed her arse off at me... until she realised we were without potty for the night.

Anyway, I do indeed rule majorly. For I am Quick... builder of toilets.

Just don't give up your day job in a hurry...

Quick said...

Which one?

Whoa - word verification is plipzky. Best one so far.

How does one sit or stand to use this?

Quick said...

GG - The same as one stands or sits to use a regular, non-leaning one. Just don't lean.

PS, there's all sorts of horizontal stuff going on now. I'm brilliant, I am.

All that white, so clinical, so minimal, so artistic even if, DIY-wise, not quite up to scratch! :-)

Margarita Milongita said...

Any of them!!!

Quick said...

Hello Reluctant. I was about to try to convince you that DIY-wise it was perfect, beauty in the eye of the beholder etc, but I think we'd all see that for what it is.

Miss Milongita - both you and the toilet have convinced me to not give up any of my day jobs to be a plumber. Not that there was ever much chance of that happening anyway.

At least you managed to avoid using a Bombay Toilet. So lucky.

I haven't escaped using a Bombay toilet or at least a Delhi,Dharamsala,Agra or Varanasi toilet for that matter.. squatting with your feet on the starting blocks is an interesting (and admittedly more natural) way of doing your biz..
