Fixing a running toilet is a must do. When you have a toilet that runs and runs this is literally thousands of gallons of water down the toilet drain. This means you could find a water bill with hundreds of dollars from a running toilet. Make this quick fix to save you money in your wallet.
Ever have one of those toilets that won’t stop running? It runs and runs. You can hear it while you lay in bed and the water bill dollars and cents are slowly calculating in your head. Can you fix your own toilet? You bet you can.
These are the days of economic woe when many homeowners are finding they are also a Mr. Fixit and a plumber. Fixing that running toilet doesn’t have to be a daunting task and you can do it yourself. Fixing a running toilet as soon as possible is a must to keep your sanity and your wallet intact. The more the toilet runs and doesn’t stop the more water is running through those pipes and the result is a higher water bill in the end.
A leaky toilet is an easier fix than most people imagine. A quick fix is removing the lid from the toilet and pulling up on bar that holds the bulb in place. Make certain that you let the tank fill before you pull up on the bar. You want a full balance of water so the next flush will be completed. This is a band aid for a leaky toilet and not a permanent fix. However, this will stop the running toilet and save thousands of gallons of water and money in your pocket.
The permanent fix for the running toilet is explained here.
