Henry went out to the front of the apartment building and turned off the main water valve. No one was home in the building except Stanley, so Henry didn't have to warn the neighbors about the shutoff. Back in the bathroom, Henry flushed the toilet. Then he used a couple of rags to dry and clean the bottom of the toilet tank. He unscrewed the plastic Fluidmaster 400A Fill Valve and removed it. He replaced it with a new fill valve. "When the water keeps running, it's usually your fill valve. It could also be the flapper, but your flapper looks okay. Plus, it's a weird-looking flapper. I'd probably have to special order it."

Henry tightened the plastic nut below the tank, securing the fill valve. "You mustn't over-tighten this, because it'll break," he said. "In the old days, we used rubber gaskets and metal nuts and washers. Nowadays, everything is cheap plastic." He went back outside, turned on the main valve, and returned. He flushed the toilet, waited for the bowl to refill and for the new fill valve to shut off the water. It shut off exactly at the Water Line mark.

"We got lucky," Henry said. "I don't have to fiddle around adjusting the fill valve. That's good, because I'm a little late for another job right now." Henry flushed the toilet again, and watched the bowl and the tank fill. "That does it," he told Stanley. Stanley thanked him and paid him.

Three hours later, Stanley noticed a puddle of water, hardly bigger than a quarter, on the bathroom floor. He called Henry, who said the plastic nut just needed a little tightening. But because he was working all that day on another job, he wouldn't be able to come over until tomorrow. He told Stanley to put a big plastic bowl under the tank and not to worry. "It's just a tiny leak. Your bathroom won't get flooded."

Bình chứa bồn cầu

Henry đi ra trước căn hộ và đóng van chính của nước. Không có ai trong toà nhà trừ Stanley, nên Henry không cần phải cảnh báo hàng xóm về việc cúp nước. Vào phòng tắm, anh giật nước bồn cầu. Anh dùng giẻ lau khô và sạch đáy bình chứa. Anh tháo van nhựa Fluidmaster 400A Fill và dời đi. Anh thay van mới. "Khi nước cứ chảy, thường là do cái van làm đầy. Cũng có thể do cái nắp chặn, nhưng cái nắp chặn nhìn okay. Thêm nữa, cái nắp chặn này hơi lạ. Chắc phải đặt hàng đặt biệt."

Henry khoá chặt nút nhựa dưới bình chứa, bảo đảm cho cái van làm đầy. "Anh không được vặn chặt quá, vì nó sẽ bể," anh nói. "Ngày xưa, chúng tôi dùng cao su và nắp sắt và chùi rửa. Bây giờ mọi thứ là nhựa rẻ tiền." Anh đi ra ngoài, bật van chính lên và quay trở lại. Anh giật bồn cầu, đợi cho nước lại đầy và chờ cho cái van làm đầy ngắt nước. Nó ngắt nước chính xác tại vạch nước đánh dấu.

"Chúng ta may mắn," Henry nói. "Tôi không phải chỉnh cái van. Tốt, vì tôi hơi trễ cho công việc tiếp theo bây giờ." Henry giật bồn cầu lần nữa, và xem cái bồn và bình chứa nước làm đầy. "Nó làm việc," anh bảo Stanley. Stanley cảm ơn và trả tiền cho anh.

Ba giờ sau, Stanley thấy một vũng nước, to hơn phần tư góc phòng tắm. Anh gọi Henry, người nói là cái nắp nhựa chỉ cần vặn vừa chặt. Nhưng vì anh đang làm cả ngày ở nơi khác, anh không thể đến cho tới ngày mai. Anh bảo Stanley để cái tô nhựa lớn dưới cái bình chứa và đừng lo quá. "Chỉ là rò rỉ nhỏ. Phòng tắm của anh không bị ngập lụt đâu."

Henry bước ra phía trước khu chung cư và vặn tắt van cấp nước chính. Trong khu chung cư không có ai ở nhà ngoại trừ Stanley, vì thế Henry không phải thông báo cho các nhà láng giềng về việc cúp nước. Quay trở vào phòng tắm, Henry giật nước bồn cầu. Rồi ông dùng vài tấm giẻ để lau khô và làm sạch phía dưới đáy của thùng nước xả bồn cầu. Ông nới cái Van Fill Fluidmaster 400A bằng nhựa và tháo nó ra. Ông thay một cái van nước vào mới. "Khi nước tiếp tục chảy, thường thường do cái van nước vào. Nó cũng có thể do cái nắp đậy, nhưng cái nắp trông còn xịn lắm. Thêm vào đó, cái nắp đậy này trông thật lạ. "Tôi chắc phải là hàng đặt làm đặc biệt đây."

Henry siết chặt con ốc bằng nhựa bên dưới cái thùng, vặn chặt cái van nước vào. "Cậu không phải vặn chặt con ốc này quá mức, vì nó sẽ bị bể," ông nói. "Trước đây, chúng tôi dùng các vòng đệm cao su cùng với ốc và rông-đên kim loại. Ngày nay, mọi thứ đều là nhựa rẻ tiền." Ông đi trở ra ngoài, mở van cấp nước chính, và trở vào. Ông giật nước bồn cầu, đợi cho bồn đầy lại và cái van nước vào mới ngắt dòng nước chảy. Nước đã bị ngăn lại đúng ngay vạch quy định.

"Chúng ta thật may mắn," Henry nói. "Tôi không phải tốn nhiều thời gian để điều chỉnh van nước vào. Thật hay, vì tôi hơi trễ cho một công việc khác ngay bây giờ." Henry giật nước bồn cầu lần nữa, và quan sát cái bồn cầu và cái thùng đầy nước. "Thế là được rồi," ông nói với Stanley. Stanley cám ơn và trả tiền cho ông.

Ba tiếng đồng hồ sau, Stanley thấy có một vũng nước, hầu như không lớn hơn đồng 25 xu, ở trên nền phòng tắm. Anh gọi cho Henry, là người đã nói chỉ cần siết nhẹ mấy con ốc bằng nhựa. Vì ông làm công việc khác suốt cả ngày, ông không thể ghé qua cho đến ngày mai. Ông bảo Stanley đặt một tô nhựa lớn phía dưới cái thùng và đừng lo lắng quá. "Chỉ rò rỉ có một chút xíu thôi mà. Phòng tắm của cậu sẽ không bị ngập lụt đâu."

@ chị HoangThiQuynhNhu thân mến:

Xin góp thêm ý kiến:

1.Fill Valve = van nước vào.
Nước vào qua fill valve làm nâng phao, khi nước dâng đến 1 vị trí mình cân chỉnh thì cần phao ép vào phía trên fill valve làm tự động đóng nước :)

Image

2. a quarter= đồng 25 cents hay 1/4 dollar.

Hi, anh phamdinhphung,

Mỗi lần phải dịch mấy bài có nhiều từ kỹ thuật, phải gọi là ráng quá chừng mới dịch được hết. Bài này là một ví dụ. Mình hoàn toàn không hình dung được cái thùng nước bồn cầu quy trình hoạt động của nó thế nào và các bộ phận của nó-dù là tiếng Việt-mình cũng chưa biết gọi ra sao nữa. Cho nên anh thấy mình đành dịch lụi rồi đó.

Vì vậy, được anh hướng dẫn và có đính kèm hình ảnh nên cũng rõ ra được rất nhiều.

Một lần nữa rất cám ơn anh.

Chúc anh vui khoẻ.
