RUNNING TOILETS

March 6, 2015  |   by Admin

A running toilet can waste gallons of water and seriously increase your monthly water bills. Running and leaking toilets are one of the most common plumbing problems and one of the less expensive repairs to perform. But care should be taken when working on your toilet and customers often do more harm than good by trying to fix problems themselves.

A minor problem that could be repaired relatively inexpensively can easily turn into a major repair and expense if the person attempting the repair does not have the knowledge and tools to do the job properly. When in doubt, it is always the better to call a professional, licensed, bonded, and insured company such as Precision Plumbing.

If your toilet keeps running after you flush it, it can be one of a number of problems. The most likely cause is a leaking water control diaphragm. But it can also be a faulty fill valve, a bad tank-to-bowl gasket, or loose or leaking seals on the tank mounting bolts.
