I'm Geordie. That's my name, I'm not "a geordie" because if that was my name and a thing I was it'd be really weird. Late 30s, cishet (he/him), love basketball and go to all Sydney Kings home games with my wife and 7 year old kid. I live in the North Shore are of Sydney in Australia. I love cooking, especially for my family, and I work in cloud tech. I joined Mastodon to have a more chill experience with more real people.
I saw a red panda with a Chinese menu in his hand / walking through the streets of Soho in the rain
Go buy all the toilet paper you want. I'm good.
So it's in. It gives your butthole a warm spa then blow dries it. It has a built in extraction fan, night light, adjustable seat temperature and for some reason I'm not yet tempted to entertain, wifi.
I need the too-short hose anyway, because the tap is too close to the underside of the sink for some sort of valve thing to fit on.I get it all connected up, turn the water back on, so far so good.
Anyway I was ok nearly tearing the toilet to shreds attaching the seat, but now I've got to plumb it in and I've never made anything better that wasn't a computer. I figure out how to turn the water off, and disconnect the water from under the sink.
The water inlet for it is on the wrong side, and it's designed to be attached to a tap on the wall, but I don't have one of those. So I've got to come in off the water supply to the sink. The hose is too fucking short of course. Off to Bunnings during coronapocalypse, face mask on, 2m from everyone, proper like.
You use a cardboard template thing to line up the seat so it fits right, then it was connected. That's about half the fight though. Now, because it's fancy it needs to be plumbed into the water and connected to the power.
Anyway I finally got them out, and the new ones in. Then washed my hands, arms and self so thoroughly I'm all dry and a bit cracky now so I've had to use about a gallon of moisturiser.
It was rusted to crap, it'd been stripped by whoever installed the old one, and the rubber grommet had hardened and broken a bit. I've never been so angry at an inanimate object.
Toilet seats attach with two holes in the back. The holes have a rubber or plastic grommet then screws holding down some sort of other mechanism for attaching them. The first one from the old seat came out in about five minutes. The other took about an hour and a fucking half.
I love to cook and eat. Professional and amateur digital technology nerd. Living on stolen Guringai land. I don’t mind people being rich but every billionaire is a policy failure and nobody should be poor.
