Why Won’t My Toilet Stop Running?

Posted on October 7th, 2016 by Jupiter Tequesta

plumber jupiter fl | Jupiter-tequesta air conditioning, plumbing & electricYou flushed the toilet — but several minutes have passed and it just won’t stop running. What should you do? Fortunately, this is a common and quick fix!

Here are a few of the most common reasons why your toilet is running long after it’s been flushed.

There’s something wrong with the chain in your toilet tank.

Check the connection between your flush level and the rubber flapper in your toilet bowl tank. If the chain is too short or long, it might interfere with how the flapper closes (and stops the tank from running).

The flapper in your tank is broken.

The rubber flapper in your tank opens and closes when you flush your toilet. If this flapper is worn or broken, it can cause a leak.

Your float is in the wrong position.

The float in your toilet tank might be too high. Check the rod that connects your float to the pump and position it so that the float rests lower.
