I can't believe we did it again. Toilet overflowed in bathroom half way down the hallway before I heard water trickling. The dreaded trickling noise, again.
Admittedly first time was worse, black water backed up through bottom of the toilet but was contained to bathroom carpet, just replaced it about 2 months ago. This time a little different, foot control valve stuck and fresh water flooded throughout bathroom and half way down hall. ARRGGG!
Tried to find someone to blame (like DW) but no ones fault but mine. A few days ago I noticed the valve sticking and berried it too far down on the list. Now a simple repair just became much more complicated.
Morale of the story, It doesn't pay to put off minor repairs 'till later.
