Toilet Leaking

How can I tell if my toilet is leaking and should I be worried?

If you hear any unexplained noises from your toilet when it is not in use, it’s likely that you have a leak. There are a few ways you can determine if your toilet is leaking. First, check the rubber flapper in the toilet to make sure that it is not corroded or otherwise damaged. Next, make sure that the water level in the toilet tank is not overflowing via the overflow pipe. Finally, you can check for leaks by adding a few drops of food coloring into the tank of the toilet and observing whether or not the water in the bowl changes color. Whatever the case, a leaking toilet is a cause for concern as it not only wastes water, it can also cost you hundreds of dollars throughout the year. Whether you simply need to have a part replaced or you need extensive repairs, it’s always best to trust a professional plumber.
