Lazy, sloppy, pathetic and typical FR manufacturing standards. Did I mention FR is on my ****list today? Sure wish I could give Warren Buffet a piece of my mind.

Playing devils advocate: if you were drilling the tank, how would you remove the drillings?

The same way FR does when drilling 35 of them a day.

Suck it out with a high powered shop vac?? I'm sure they drill a lot of holes: the sink, the tub, the vents, etc Most manufacturers don't leave the shavings just laying where they fall though. Normally it wouldn't be a big deal except it caused us a lot of hassle when we couldn't drain our grey water. Then when we got home, it did drain so we thought we were good. Next trip same thing so it was really annoying.

Have any of you retrieved one of the 3" disks left behind? I saw one floating around in my black tank, chased it around for a while with a modified marshmallow fork to no avail... Gave up, but I would like to get it out of there before it plugs up the drain pipe. Any suggestions???

TL474 Maybe one of those long grabber arms if you can find one with a small enough claw?? Try it with an empty tank if you can see it or a tank full of water.

I saw this in my black tank and made a wire hook. Poked it through the pilot hole in the center and got it out that way... not fun. Once I got it up there it wouldn't come through the toilet opening easily. I was afraid I was going to do more damage than I wanted to fix. So I had to get a pair of pliers and some snips, and cut one side off. Yes, I dropped it a couple of times... Yep... I was cussin' FR that day. Not sure how many times I washed my hands that evening... but the tan on my hands didn't match my arms...

Good idea, but MY toilet isn't as big as a FordIdaho! Thanks
