The drains under the bathroom and kitchen sinks were leaking and were replaced by Durbin Plumbing on 2-18-2020. The bathroom ceramic floor is discolored from a carpet that was on the floor for many years. The bathroom toilet is an older low profile Kohler and does not flush well. Durbin Plumbing determined that the old toilet itself was the problem; however, when they attempted to install a new replacement toilet they discovered that the current toilet was glued to the ceramic floor and they were unable to pull up the old toilet without damaging the ceramic floor. The purchaser will need to pull up the toilet, install a new floor, and then install a new toilet. The house does need some updating.
