I'm a complete illiterate when it comes to fixing things. My husband
isn't much better than I
We bought a brand new home 7 years ago and have had a few problems over
the years with clogged toilets from time to time;nothing that a plunger
couldn't fix. As the years have passed, we now have ongoing clogging
issues with all 3 toilets; one downstairs and two upstairs. I bought a
snake before calling plumber to see if that mighth help; but it didn't.
I called a plumber. For 150 dollars he told me that we have 3 cheap
toilets and he'll unclog them and they're guaranteed for a week. Yep,
7 flippin days for 150 bucks. What a deal. One of them clogged in two
days and the guy returned. Now all 3 keep clogging and our plunger
travels from bathroom to bathroom several times a week. He suggested

new toilets (the going rate seems to be about 150 per toilet for
Does one have to spend 500 dollars on a freakin toilet to have it not
Does it make sense to have all 3 done at once or should we start with
one and see if the problem gets solved and then do the other two? Or
if we get someone to come out and install one, would it be cheaper to
have all 3 done?
We don't have a few thousand dollars sitting around to get this done
and I want to make the wisest choice possible. I looked at Lowes.com
and homedepot.com and the amount of toilets available for purchase are
just too overwhelming for me. I can barely choose between paper or
plastic at the grocery store. I have some challenging health issues
going on in my life and just can't be bothered with this "shit", so to
Any ideas, suggestions or insight would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much in advance!
