For the fun of it, and to get hands on experience, I worked on a urinal flush valve today.  Of course, I always figure I can fix what is wrong.  Wrong!  In this case there is enough wear and tear that a properly functioning valve has become an open valve pouring forth unnecessary and copious amounts of H20.

Of course, it took me a number of minutes (which total amount I’m not about to disclose!) to figure out that I wasn’t about to create a miracle.  Finally I went looking for a replacement part.  Then, 15 minutes reassembling the various parts and the urinal was working properly.

The fun of the day?  Just getting things working! 

I realize someone may want to flush this blog entry down the drain, but at least now I can help you fix the valve to be sure everything works it’s way out!
