The thing is I need to climb into my handyman overalls, drive to Home Depot or Lowe's, and ask silly questions about parts I'm certain haven't seen dust on a shelf in years. Then I'll do a return trip and cuss and throw tools and after long consultation with the wife call a darn professional plumber. That's the crux of it. Yet, I shall try. Frugal is my middle name. But please allow me to yell this fact loud and clear....I hate home plumbing projects. I've yet to meet two pipes I've had the skill to wed without the joint ever so slowly bend in order to shed a tear of soft water.
Sweet Wife suggested we break the bank and purchase a newer model and then have the repair company install it. My manhood card took a hit....
We'll see. Hey, if you hear screams and a hard bump and several .45 shots from this direction....you'll know what just happened.
