    My wife came to me about 2 hours ago with bad news.
    My 9 YO daughter was in the hot tub with some of her dolls.
    Apparently they were SMALL dolls, and got sucked into the intake of the hot tub.:eek1: :eek1: :eek1:
    Noiw, I have the joy of dismantling the plumbing and trying to fish out not 1 but 2 dolls, before they make their way to the pump, and do really bad things.

    Oh well, this ain't the first time my kids have given me plumbing work. My oldest (26), once flushed 4 Transformers down the toilet. They got halfway through the innards of the toilet before they got stuck. Hello new toilet.:doah:

    After having 3 or 4 houses back up (rental units), I'd rather the toilet clog easily. Changing toilets is down to about a 1/2 hour job from showing up to leaving now. Most of them I just turn over, give a pop on the bottom, and twist turning it back over, and whatever got stuck is in the bowl. Having to dig a hole to cut into pipe to fix a clog just aint fun times.

    One of my toilets has got a case of the slow flush, and its getting worse. Do you have to take the toilet off to figure it out? Everything else in the house is draining fine. 2 and a 5 year old in the house. I'm thinking along the lines of a polly pocket or hello kitty in there.

    I HOPE you didn't give it back to him. Go buy a new toothbrush, carefully remove it from the packaging, replace with the toilet brush, and give it to your "wife" as a Christmas present.:eek1: :eek1: :eek1:
