What are some common causes of toilet leaks?
Possible causes of toilet leaks include:
- Chain or strap in the tank that is too long and doesn’t lift the flapper or ball high enough to float on its own.
- Bad flush valve (located in the center of the tank). Check the ball, flapper, seal or gasket under the flush valve.
- Bad refill valve (located in the left side of the toilet tank).
These leaks are easy to fix with do-it-yourself parts from your local hardware store or you can contact your plumber. There are also several websites on the internet that demonstrate how to find and fix a toilet leak.
