broke my toilet!

Okay...broke it but not how you might think!

Was putting ice down toilet to help agitate the tank for the ride home and prior to dumping and a chunk got caught in the flapper (we have the type that looks like a ball??? not sure the model)...and I just kept trying to flush it. Heard a pop and the flapper stopped moving...sounded like it came off a track (or whatever the mechanism might be that connects it to the flush lever).

Anyone have to deal with fixing this? Is it as easy as disconnecting the water line, pulling the toilet up, flipping it over and fixing??

Thanks all!

Jason

Truthfully, the ice melts so fast in the water that is in the tank, it does little good.

Thats true you would have to put a ton of it in there to do anything and then it just runs to the low side

That's what I always thought and never used any. I need it for the Vodka

I do put 1/2 bottle of Dawn and fill the tank half way and drive to my next destination and dump. Do the same with grey tank. My tanks are clean and my sensors work.

Argument 1 on "Why not to dump ice down the dumper"


The OEM shaft is a cheap piece of plastic

The OEM repolacment is carved out of brass


Go to the RV dealer and order a new flush ball.. That's the best I can offer.
