At long last.
Electrician Mike very creditably installed both BTSes, one upstairs and one downstairs. Due to the age of the house and the need for a dedicated circuit for each BTS, there was a little bit of work to be done and he did it. (Insert name) the plumber was not available but explained what needed to be done, and Mike took care of that, too.
The website gives one the impression that installation is simple and not very time-consuming; in fact, it says installation only takes an hour. Poor Mike started the work yesterday and did not finish until today, so Jenny renamed the BTS the "bi-two-det."
The new equipment has been tested and not found wanting. I have yet to test every function, but a newfound patience has come over me and I'm willing to wait... I don't want my gratification to be too immediate.
The heated seat is most pleasant. The warm air dry is similarly delightful. What happens from the time you sit on the heated seat to the time the warm air dryer shuts off is, uh, is, well, it's lovely. Lovely, lovely, lovely.
One is cautioned about using the "turbo" setting -- apparently this function is only to be used by the most stalwart individuals or by those who have help waiting nearby. It is doubtful that the "turbo" button will be pushed anytime soon. I frighten easily (ask me sometime about the TV show I watched as a child that scared me away from drugs) so will heed the "turbo" warning.
And so, faithful readers, this ends the way-too-drawn out nonsense about my potty. Unless, of course, I accidentally hit the wrong button.
