Running toilets can be a simple fix

Most homeowners face a toilet that won’t stop running at one time or another. Such a situation is more than just annoying; it can cost you a lot of money in increased water bills. Depending on your water cost, a toilet that runs constantly for two weeks can cost around $100. That’s like throwing money out of the window.

Fixing your running toilet

Fortunately, fixing a constantly running toilet is easy and inexpensive to fix. Most of the time, the problem is with either the flapper or the float. Either the flapper isn’t sealing at the bottom of the tank or the float isn’t signaling the water to stop running. Both are inexpensive parts, found at any hardware or home improvement store, and can be replace with a minimum of skill in about a half hour.
