Why Is My Toilet Running?

Here are three of the most common reasons why you have a running toilet:

You need to lower the float

This could be due to overflow water leaking into the bowl from the tank (via the overflow tube.) This occurs when the tank is holding too much water. The water level can be adjusted by changing the height of the float.

A leaking flapper

This means you will need to replace it. When flappers get old, they cannot seal as well as they used to, which allows water to continuously pass from the tank into the bowl.

You need to shorten the refill tube

If the refill tube is constantly pumping water into the toilet bowl, it could mean it is too long.

Do I Need Toilet Replacement?

Here are some common signs that may indicate you need a replacement:

  • It is constantly clogging.
  • There are cracks in the porcelain that are causing puddles of water around.
  • You need constant repairs.
  • It is extremely old.
  • It has built-up mineral deposits.
  • The flushing system is not working properly.
  • There is damage to the surface.

Things You Shouldn't Flush Down the Toilet

No one wants a clogged toilet. While most people stick to the basics when it comes to flushing, here are some items you should never flush if you want to look after your appliance:

  • Baby wipes.
  • Cotton pads, Q-tips, and other cotton products.
  • Diapers.
  • Tissues and paper towels.
  • Medication.
  • Hair.
  • Gum.
  • Food.
