Install A New Toilet Float Cup

Toilet water runs continuously

fix a running toiletIf water runs continuously in your toilet, remove the tank lid and check the water level.  If water is running over the top of the overflow tube, lower the level.  If there is a float ball, bend its rod so the ball sits lower.

A kinked or tangled chain may cause toilet “run on”.  Detach it from the handle arm, undo the kink or tangle, and reattach it so there is about ½-inch of slack in the chain when the flapper is seated.  According to the plumbing of Littleton experts, it may be necessary to install a new float cup.  Shut off the water at the toilet stop valve.  Flush the toilet to empty the tank.
