What is a Running Toilet, and What Are the Consequences?

fix running toiletsA running toilet is a common plumbing issue caused by a faulty flapper valve or other components in the tank. It allows water to leak continuously from the tank into the bowl without ever refilling it. Not only is this annoying and wasteful, but it can lead to higher water bills and potential damage to a home if not addressed quickly.

Furthermore, a running toilet can also indicate a more serious plumbing issue, such as leaks. It is vital to address this issue promptly to prevent further damage and the associated costs. Fortunately, most running toilets can be fixed relatively easily by adjusting the flapper valve or replacing worn components. A professional plumber can diagnose and repair any underlying issues.

Leaks Can Also Spike the Water Bill!

The best way to avoid an unexpectedly high water bill due to leaks is by regularly inspecting the plumbing for signs of leaks and having them repaired by a plumber as soon as possible. Routine plumbing maintenance and inspections by professionals are also crucial to ensure the plumbing is in good shape and to catch any issues like a running toilet or leaks before they wreak havoc on the water bills.
