    Man I'd hate to be a plumber and god bless those of you that do the work. I had to change the wax ring on one of my leaky toilets today and blah /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif Just thought I'd share my disgusting moment with all of you guys.

    The best part of the job is the puff of sewer gas that violates your nostrils when you remove the toilet. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I agree with you. When all my boys were young I got to be very fast at toilet removal and wax ring replacement. Thay kept flushing "D" cell batterys and Thomas the Tank Engine toys down the thing. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    I could tear out a toilet and be clearing it out in the backyard in 10 min. or so!! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    You know what sucks even more? When you step on one of those used rings and that crap gets stuck in your boots. I had to take a pressure washer to them... /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Nothing like spending quality hours plunging the **** outta the toilet only to see the very end of what it is your trying to free, knowing you're gonna have to pull the toilet... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
