|No I didn't wee in a glass! It is our tap water|
on the left compared to bottled water on the right- nice!
When the plumber finally did arrive, I was required, once again to explain, to a man who didn’t speak a word of English, that all I wanted was a fully functioning flushing system (a bit of alliteration for you there). After an exhausting 10 minutes of sign language, he started work, 5 minutes later he finished and left. ‘Fixed now madam’ Praveen said and left the flat quicker than lightning. Thinking that this was very suspicious behaviour, I went into the bathroom to check out the handy work, and low and behold the toilet was still leaking and the flush was still delayed. I was not happy, I ran to the top of stairs and called Praveen back up, he didn’t answer, so I ran down the stairs as fast as my legs could carry me and intercepted him on the 5th floor as he exited the lift. ‘It's still not right Praveen’ I said. Clearly annoyed that I had caught up with him, he explained that it was only a little drip now and that the flush only took 10 minutes to work! As the tears welled up in my eyes Praveen seemed to thaw for a moment and said he would sort it, he came back up to the flat and called the plumber again. This time the plumber actually brought some tools with him which I thought was much more promising and I watched whilst he changed some of the piping around. Success! We had a leaky toilet no longer! However, we now have yellow water flushing the toilet so it constantly looks like a wee has been left behind, our tap water is yellow and our shower water is yellow!! I’m not looking forward to explaining that ‘yellow water’ is not acceptable to Praveen on Monday morning. And did I mention the water is YELLOW? Breathe!!!!
