Uses for an old inner tube
Yet again our toilet packed up - not too many curries but the modern syphons are useless - the old one lasted 20 years and the new one lasted a year before the diaphragm went. Replaced the diaphragm adn it lasted 6 months - so annoying. They are made from thin poly sheet like a plastic bag - useless - to thin and too brittle. I started thinking where can I get a thin sheet of rubber from? Gloves are too thin - then it dawned on me - a quick trip down to a local tyre place and I picked up an old inner tube for nothing - it's perfect!!!
Not only good for fixing bogs but all sorts of things. Great for making gaskets and seals etc. You could also repair a leaking fuel pipe by winding some rubber around first and then a load of insulation tape.
So many uses - even the local fetish club should have some!!!
