Why Your Toilet Won’t Stop Running

Monday, June 26th, 2017

toilet-with-button-flushThere are sounds you expect to hear from appliances and fixtures in your house, and you know how long these sounds should continue. For example, after a toilet is flushed, you should hear the sound of running water for about a minute afterwards. This is water coming from the feed line to fill up the tank to a set level, ready to rush down into the bowl for the next flush.

But if the sound of running water continues for more than a minute after the flush, there’s something wrong. Often, all it takes to correct the problem is to jiggle the handle or flush the toilet a second time. If the issue persists, there’s something wrong in the tank or elsewhere in this vital fixture that will need to be repaired.

The Different Ways That Toilets Can Leak

Monday, August 29th, 2016

Here’s a fact you may not have known: the bathroom toilet consumes a greater volume of fresh water than any other indoor household fixture.

This is why it’s important to deal rapidly with any toilet malfunction, such as when the toilet begins to leak. This is a major waste of water. (And it will cause damage to the floor that can in extreme cases lead to collapse.)
