Diagnose and Fix a Running Toilet [Cleaning]

11 Lug/09

A running toilet will eventually snap your last nerve, and jiggling the handle only provides temporary reprieve. Fortunately, home improvement site DIY Life shows how to diagnose and silence your toilet in five minutes or less.

First and most important, you properly diagnose the problem. To make sure that your toilet is in fact running, turn off the tap behind your toilet, then check and record the tank’s water level. Return to it in a few hours. If the water level has dropped, you’ve got yourself a problem.

One of the main causes of a running or faulty toilet is the chain that’s connected to the flapper. If it’s too short, the flap won’t close properly, and if it’s too long, the chain will often get in the way. If the chain is neither too long nor too short, you’ll need to replace the flap.

Hit up the full post for instructions on how to do so. Just remember to turn off the water and flush your tank before you begin. And if your problem is not a running toilet, but a dirty one, try using a can of coke to clean your toilet when you don’t have gear on hand.
