A running toilet usually means your float is out of place or your flapper is damaged. This problem isn’t just annoying, it can rack up water bills and cause damage if left untreated. Remove the lid to your toilet tank and look to see if the water level and float are too high. If so, water will continue draining. Simply adjust the float height and the water level will follow.
If the flapper is cracked or loose, you’ll need to replace that to prevent water from leaking through. Test it by placing a few drops of food coloring into your tank. If it leaks into the toilet bowl, you’ll know your flapper is the problem.
