Toilets running water is an annoying issue for most of family as they are not professional plumber. However, if you don’t fix it, toilet running water bill will cost you at the end of month. According our experience, toilets running water is usually caused by a problem with the tank ball, the ballcock or intake valve, or the float ball.
Firstly, we should find the source of the trouble, remove the toilet tank top and place it in a safe location. Then push the flush lever and watch what happens.
Sticky flush valve. If, after you flush, the water keeps running until you wiggle the flush handle up and down, the problem is probably with the linkage between the flush handle and tank ball.
Sticky tank ball or flapper valve. The tank ball or flapper valve is sticky if isn’t falling into the drain properly.
Floatball problems. A misadjusted or damaged floatball, on the other hand, is usually the cause of water dribbling into the toilet tank, running out the overflow tube into the toilet bowl, and then going down the drain.
Ballcock problems. A ballcock that doesn’t close completely is another possible cause of a leaking toilet.
When you find the real cause , you can replace the parts or adjust the parts to fix the problems.
