Plumber working on toilet

Why Does My Toilet Keep Running?

It’s one of the most annoying issues with your toilet. Sometimes after you flush, you’ll notice the running water in the toilet doesn’t stop. This is caused by a variety of issues that can be fixed yourself. Many people struggle to find the problem, and they mess with the flush handle. The first thing you need to do is to determine the cause.

Check for Yourself

You can always take a look for yourself before you call the plumber. It may be an easy fix that you can fix with no problem, but if you can’t, a plumber will be able to find the issue. It could be a large problem at hand, so you should never disregard the expertise of a plumber.

Here are some reasons why your toilet is running:

  • Flapper Leaks
  • Float Height
  • Refill Tube too Long
  • Flapper Chain

You can fix your toilet problems by repairing parts, but if you have problems continuing to happen, investing in a new toilet may be the smart choice.
