Toilet won't stop running.

Do you think that your toilet tank might be leaking water into the bowl in between flushes? Does it seem like it may be running too long after each flush? Look, if your toilet tank is leaking in between flushes, you should not delay. This can cause your water bill to increase significantly! Even if it’s not an obvious issue and the toilet isn’t constantly running, it can be costly. A moderate leak will waste around 6,000 gallons of water per month. That could mean an extra $70 per month on your water bill!

So, here’s what you need to do to see if your tank really is leaking in between flushes:

  1. Grab some food coloring.
  2. Remove the lid from the tank.
  3. Add the food coloring to your tank.
  4. Wait.
  5. In a couple of hours, check the toilet bowl.

If the water in your toilet bowl has changed at all, it mean’s you’re right and the tank is leaking water into the bowl in between flushes. If it is, usually simply changing the flapper can stop the leak. It’s a simple fix. The instructions are on the packaging. Still, here’s a handy video:
