  2. Hello

    I am a subscriber to your YouTube channel. I thought I would
    let you know that YouTube/ PlayStation are costing you $$

    I came home yesterday 5/29/2020 and went to view your
    channel which I Do primarily through my PS4 console.

    It will not allow me to log on thus I cannot view your
    channel and without that I cannot click thumbs up or down

    I have waited almost 24 hours now and it is not resolved. I
    can log on using my lap top so I am doing so and I wanted to share this info in
    case you did not know. You are going into your second day without a portion of
    your viewers being able to interact with you channel and thus it is costing
    your revenue wanted you to know.

    you will see your numbers trending and your hits likes going down and this is probably a contributing reason.

  3. Well, I’ve done flapper valve repairs, handle replacements, chain replacements, and even installed a whole new fill valve unit. I felt pretty confident with those by watching YouTube videos from Lowe’s. But if I have to replace a wax seal or a whole toilet, I will just be calling a plumber! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I hate my toilet, it holds barely any water. If I pour more water into the bowl directly, it siphons it back down to where it was. It’s not clogged and nothing wicking water out, it’s just a bad design. 1 more inch tall of water would make a huge difference. The water stops 9 inches from the far end of the toilet, so even if you sit back as far as you can, your waste still won’t be any more than like 25-50% submersed in water. Gerber 1.6 gpf. I checked other people with the same model, it had the same water level. What’s the point of a large toilet bowl if it’s 90% air? I didn’t buy the toilet, so I have no idea where it came from, so don’t assume i got it from Lowe’s, I was just hoping this video might have a solution besides the obvious correct solution which would be buying a different toilet.
