  2. Toilet Flapper Promo - Put Your Toilet on a Pedestal

    November 1, 2019, 8:00 AM - November 30, 2019, 3:00 PM @ Normal Hardware

    A toilet is not just a toilet. It's a life-saver, dignity-protector, and opportunity-maker. World Toilet Day is held every November 19 to raise awareness of the importance of toilets to ensure no one is left behind without sanitation. This World Toilet Day, put your toilet on a pedestal and keep it well maintained. The toilet flapper - the plug that falls against the drain hole inside the tank and holds water in until the toilet is flushed - can become bent or chipped, which can result in toilet leaks and higher water bills. Replacing a flapper is a simple and inexpensive repair most can do themselves. Pick up a flapper* during the month of November at Normal Hardware. *Korky universal 2-inch & 3-inch flappers only, one per customer while supplies last
