Yesterday the toilet broke, flooding everything. The landlord required that someone be in the apartment when the plumber came to pay him if we had flushed anything down the commode that caused the problem. I wrote her (our phone does not work) that the lift pump had failed: impeller or motor or both but she would not bring a plumber until we were here (even though the flat charge is €150 and she holds a €150 security deposit)! So, I asked Donna to follow our schedule and go see the Vatican in Rome and I would wait. At 3:15p they showed up. Problem was the impeller broke and jammed the motor. A 3+ year old pump that the landlord wrote was "new". Anyhow, it's fixed.
