$300.00 - $100.00 toilet
Our house is about 13 years old. It had the old style 5 gal. (or whatever) toilets. One of them started giving problems and instead of repairing, I did what I thought was the right thing. I replaced with a fancy new Jacuzzi Perfecta 1.6 gal. model. Being on a well and septic, I wanted to cut down on water consumption to save running the well and putting unneeded water into the septic field.
This make and model had been recommended by several people, including my plumber who sells a different brand and could have pushed one of those on me at a considerably higher price. The Jacuzzi has an extra large 'throat' or whatever to allow passage of 'stuff' without plugging. Or it's supposed to.
Since installing, every few months it stops up. I have a home style auger but that doesn't do the job. So, I call the plumber at $50.00 a trip. It will stop up with an extra large.....uh....'deposit'.
So far, this $100.00 toilet has cost us, at least, $300.00. I ain't happy.
I'm going to pop for a professional style auger to do the clearing myself.
