Please no suggestions to dump him. wink

He's messed with the setting so it now takes the loo 141 secinds to refill. Yurp over 2 mins to stop that gushy noise.

He's trying to convince me that it's within the normal rage of refilling time.

Anyone happy to time their flush for me?

AIBU to be cross about the noise?

Hold him under while you flush?

Outrageous. What was he thinking? The fool!

ChaosTrulyReigns Fri 07-Mar-14 19:29:28

I'm actually quite miffed.

It's a horrble noise.

It was my bidet yesterday and it was an unwelcome pressie at 5am. I had notgiven express peemission for him to muck about with the settings.

Anyone willing to get their stopwatcg out?

i could do with a wee....I shall report back

i won't be long as I have no bidet.

Do you have a computerised loo?! How does one fiddle with the settings otherwise?!

Is it one of those that plays background flush noises whilst you wee and then cleans the seat automatically afterwards? Because that would be cool.

Christ the things I do for random strangers,

I will be back soon

Catsmamma Fri 07-Mar-14 19:36:08

right....41 seconds total time, from flush to finish

10 seconds of whooshing water into the pan, a couple of seconds of trickle, and then the rest was just cistern noise.

NeedsAsockamnesty Fri 07-Mar-14 19:38:57

42.27 seconds

141 seconds is unacceptable imo, btw, what if you have to do a double flush for a big job. ....our plumbing is quite elderly so all the children have been trained to anticipate the need for a double flush.

you are going to be in there all evening if you have a big poo to do.

<suddenly realises is oversharing>

If this wasn't a well known poster I would be thinking that the Poo Troll had found a new way of stirring the shit. grin

Mandy2003 Fri 07-Mar-14 19:44:09

Change it back to something acceptable then gaslight him grin

"Random Stranger"?

shock

Mmm, 40ish seconds, huh? This is Beyond The Pail.

ChaosTrulyReigns Fri 07-Mar-14 19:45:42

Nope, not compooterised.

There's a gadgetygizmooy twisterytunrnery adjustment to slow the flow.

At one stage our toilet took 4 hrs to fill up, if left to its own devices. I'm not sure how I didn't go insane. It now takes 30 secs. Over 2 mins would annoy the hell out of me. But we have had major problems with water pressure and heating water. It is a real bug bear of mine.

In short: Stop fiddling Mr Chaos!

Bluestocking Fri 07-Mar-14 19:48:41

Mr Chaos is a Ballcockfucker.

SackAndCrack Fri 07-Mar-14 19:51:35

Brb

I thought from the thread title he was fiddling with himself in the loo...

NeedsAsockamnesty Fri 07-Mar-14 20:00:00

I apologise wholeheartedly and without reservation or calling you a random stranger,

I should have said person I don't really know who lives in my iPad.

But yes his behaviour is shocking

BuggersMuddle Fri 07-Mar-14 20:04:26

Why is he fanning about with your loo? Is he a plumber?

Find him a hobby or a job that needs doing grin

Sympathy - DP is a fiddler, albeit not with loos.

Him: 'I've made an incremental improvement in X'
Me: 'Aye that's great, but have you done Y DIY you promised to progress?
