Running ToiletA running toilet is not only an annoying to listen to, but it also costs you money as the water continuously cycles through your toilet. Don’t ignore your running toilet! Call us at A Step Above Plumbing, and we can get your toilet fixed up and working properly in no time.

Usually a running toilet is caused by damaged parts. Often times, the flapper covering the valve won’t seal properly and needs to be replaced. The other common reason for a running toilet is when the float is set too high in your toilet and needs to be lowered so the water level doesn’t get so high and drain through to the bowl continuously. If neither of these things is the culprit for your running toilet, then the fill valve will need to be replaced.
