How to Fix a Leaky Toilet

Posted on: June 21st, 2011 by zach

Toilet keeps running?

Now, the “smarty pants” answer is… Well catch it! But the practical answer is to do something about it.

Most people jiggle the handle and the running water stops. The problem is; it’s only a short term solution. The sensible answer is to have a plumber check inside the toilet tank to see why the water is escaping from the tank into the bowl when it shouldn’t be.

The problem could be as simple as debris under the flapper, and the solution as simple as changing the flapper or the flush valve as the seal is worn out. Or, we may make adjustments to the fill valve or any combination of the above.

A licensed plumber can take care of this for you, solving an annoying problem as well as conserving water and money in the process.
