I have a new DIY project on the horizon. I need to replace a toilet. Not a very glamorous projec but a necessity all the same. My standard issue (55 year old toilet) seems to have malfunctioned so I decided I would upgrade to a "comfort height" toilet and save wear and tear on my knee joints. My quest started yesterday and I NEVER knew there were so many options in toilets these days. One thing I noticed is that it is hard to find a standard round bowl. Almost all of them are elongated. Now, I don't know about anyone else but I just don't have an elongated butt. In fact, none of my friends have elongated fannies either (at least as far as I can tell). Isn't that a lot like trying to put a round peg in an elongated hole? There just has to be some overage!!!! Another decision to be made is the dual flush versus the regular flush. So clever.....#1 for #1 and #2 for pooh......How clever! One feature I want for sure is the self closing lid. I don't know why I want it since I live alone and no one leaves the lid up unless it is me, but I just think it is clever. I doubt this will end up being a DIY project since the more I read the more complicated installation sounds. I may just have to get a porta-potty out back and call it good!
