Bogs 'R Us

For a few weeks now, the downstairs lavatory has been malfunctioning, as in, when you flush it, the water just keeps on coming and the only way to stop the flow has been to lift the cistern lid and then slowly lower it back into place. Don't ask me why it works, it just does.
Whilst not happy with the situation, I lived with it, in the hope that it would  one day sort itself out without any action needing to be taken and I think Keith was of the same mind, so we kept a watching brief, but occasionally, my clients need to use this lavatory too and I can hardly dart in after they've emerged to lift the cistern lid, not without awkward explanations, anyway. 
So, yesterday, Keith was finally on the case and sorted it, by himself, without having to replace the cistern and he is, naturally, very proud, as he has kept on and on about it not ceased to remind me of his success for the past twenty four hours.
That's that, then. Now onto the other items on the to-do list ...

He must be flushed with success! My advice to Keith would be to rest on his laurels for at least two weeks.

It's advice that I'm sure he will take, SP. ;)

Perhaps Keith should move away from keys and get a van with "LooMan" on the side - zooming around the lanes of North Wales troubleshooting lavatorial problems. You would be his personal secretary..."Good afternoon. LooMan Services. How can we help you?" or "For flushing problems press one. For blockages press two. For sliding toilet seats press three. For all other problems press hold your buttocks together and our operator will be with you soon!"

It doesn't exactly enthloos me, YP. ;)
