Tips for Fixing a Running Toilet

Published Date: February 13th, 2023 | Category: Plumbing Tips

After you flush your toilet, does the water keep running? This is a common problem and one that should not be ignored. A leaking toilet can waste up to 200 gallons per day! That will definitely begin to up your water bill.

Thankfully, a running toilet is easy to detect since you can hear it. It’s also quite simple to fix in most cases. Simply open the tank and check the chain that hangs down vertically and attaches to the rubber “flapper” at the bottom. The chain should be taut. If it’s loose, you can shorten it by removing some links with needle-nose pliers.
