Hi, I’m Phil Bridges, owner of Straight Arrow Repair. Ever want to know how a repairman fixes things? Well come with me, and I’ll show you how I solve problems. Let’s make things better together.
I wanted you guys to see what it was to put in a Henshaw toilet. It’s a got an elongated bowel, shows a 12 inch rough in. It’s kind of normal. 30 inches high. 16 and three quarters high on the bowel itself and 28 inches out. So let’s see what it looks like. We’ll put it together and learn. I think I’ve done one of these two or three of these before there’s a wax ring which we will need for the bowel to the tank.
“We just going over to the edge of that and it can’t go on top of it.”
Right. Well you could, but you have to not over to all they go up to both sides.
Just put this on this old carpet. Got some padding in there. That comes out. Tank lid. Toilet bowel lid. There’s the bolts. Let me see this box. I don’t see the bolts to tighten everything. Yeah, oh there they are. All right, the rubber gasket.
Well better show you there’s a… These squares here will fit on that I’ll take this loose that’s good. They got the nut to hold that washer on the inside that’s always good whenever you replace them to add that extra nut in the kit.
“We have never had too many nuts asked Venita.”
There’s companies that make money off of nuts.
“I’m sure they’re nuts.”
They have to be certified nuts.
“And we ain’t talking about almonds and pistachios. Talking about Joe Biden.”
“Ya, your wife told me I can’t say that C-word no more.”
“Huh? Said Phil should have told me. She said, I don’t think he knew about it.”
All right. I put the bolts into those holes see where.
“I think John got in trouble?”
Maybe won’t be his first might not be his last.
“Well definatly not his last.”
Putting the nuts on here we get them both started. Put a little bit of weight on it. I think I got a new blade for that somewhere.
“I hope I don’t need it again now.”
Now let’s put the toilet lid on. It has these bolts and nuts usually it’s a blade screwdriver but we’ll see. Pop these loose.
“I was going to thank that lady that told what I got for the trailer the other day. And I couldn’t find her nowhere.”
(Blalbalba from John)
I wonder if I should put the washer in there with it? It’s probably be better? Yeah.
“Mom called me up, er no she messaged me like, a few days back, so the commodes not filling. I said did you turn the off on? I never touched it. It had water. Uhh… Oh, it’s working now, I turned the knob.”
Why was the knob turned off? That’s kind of odd.
“We turned it off because she was, she wasn’t going to be staying.”
Oh, she was going to be gone.
So you’re a plumber, right?
“What’s the washer? Oh, I’ll wait till after we’re done here.”
Got to get a blade screwdriver to tighten that up. Yeah, lined up a little bit before I tighten it up well, making it look harder than it really is.
So we’ve put the things together. There’s a toilet lid. We’re going to take it inside and install it. You won’t have to be with us for that. But it’s just that simple with these Aquasource. In this case, it’s a Henshaw style. So there you go. You can do it. And I was told by a gentleman that America goes all the way down to Brazil, North America so I learned that America but it’s not just the United States. And a lot of it is more than English speaking, Spanish speaking and so on.
Still, they can be Americans instead of American’ts also. Although with me, though, I have to get it translated into Spanish because I’m not speaking it. I used to. Not anymore. See you later.
This is Phil Bridges, if you like what you saw and think it might be helpful to somebody else, push that like button and let other people know what you and I know, and we’ll work together toward making a brighter future. By the way, we’re not Amera-Can’ts we’re Americans. See you next time.
