.. amazed when several pieces of ceramic came through the post the next day
Thank you to Brokenbog.com for speedily and miraculously finding a new cistern in the right colour. Being pregnant and having to use the loo several times a night was bad enough, then we noticed a constant drip and a large crack down the back of the cistern, (at this point can I advise you not to try to silicon seal any cistern cracks!). We decided to turn off the water to the toilet so that the floor didn't get damaged and use buckets to flush, not easy when you're up 3 or 4 times a night! We had also decided that we were going to sell the house, which of course you can't really do with a leaking loo. Alas the corner bath suite, in very good nick apart from the dripping cistern, is a lovely shade of what I thought was champagne and finding anything but white was impossible. Finding a wonderful shade chart on brokenbog.com revealed that "champagne" has a variety of shades and after making an e-mail enquiry with a picture attachment, was amazed when several pieces of ceramic came through the post the next day. A perfect match was found and a quick phone call had the team out hunting down a cistern that was not only the right colour but had the couplings in the right place. A couple of days later the cistern (with fittings inside) were delivered by courier to my place of choice (work). Very quickly it was installed and the flush activated much to our relief. The house sold very quickly and no-one has even noticed that the cistern is a slightly different shape. I can only thank Brokenbog for helping out when we needed them most and keep recommending them to anyone with a slightly weird colour bathroom suite!
