Why Does My Toilet Keep Running?

A plumber fixing a toilet

An essential fixture of any bathroom is the toilet. One of the most common questions about the toilet is, “why does mine keep running?” In this blog, we’ll discuss multiple reasons your toilet could be running and why you should fix it sooner rather than later.

Reasons for A Continuously Running Toilet

One reason your toilet could be running is something wrong with one of the parts. The most common issue tends to be with the flapper or flush valve located in the tank of the toilet. These tend to get worn down over time and need to be replaced. These can be purchased at a hardware store or installed by a professional plumber.

Another common reason a toilet won’t stop running is that the water level in the tank is far too high for the model of toilet. If you think this is the issue, you can lower the level in the tank, and the water will stop trying to overflow into the bowl.

Why You Should Fix Your Toilet

The biggest reason is a toilet that won’t stop running is creating waste in your home. A running toilet not only wastes water but it also wastes your time and money by having to spend time fixing your toilet.

A running toilet can also indicate a bigger plumbing problem within your home or business. A toilet that won’t properly fill could be due to a lack of water pressure from a clogged or leaking pipe. A clogged pipe can burst to lead to property damage and mold growth. It could also be a larger issue with a blockage in the sewer on your property.
