If your toilet runs constantly, it’s not only annoying but wastes a lot of water. Many times, your fill valve may be the problem. It regulates the water levels in the tank after each flush, and when broken, water slowly fills the upper toilet tank.
You may also have a broken flush valve, which causes a constant flow of water into the toilet bowl.
While a clogged toilet may happen more frequently than other issues, sometimes you need a plumber with the right tools to fix the problem. Avoid the mess of overflowing wastewater into your home by calling a professional.
If your toilet isn’t flushing, it’s usually a sign of a handle (or flapper) problem. You can easily fix the problem by reattaching the flapper chain to the handle or tightening the hardware in the tank. If the problem persists, a plumber may recommend replacing the flapper.
Leaks can occur in several places, including water supply lines, around the base of your toilet, or in the upper tank. Fixes may involve replacing the ring that seals the base of the toilet or replacing a faulty flange. A broken seal around the base may also cause your toilet to wobble, posing a safety hazard.
