How To Prevent Toilet From Running Up Water Bill
Ensure it is operating efficiently. Start by adding a few drops of food coloring to your water tank. If the color appears in the bowl without flushing, you have a leak.
Replace worn out or faulty valves. This can help ensure you are operating your toilet properly and reduce water usage.
Make installations to your toilet to help save water. If you install a fill valve or two flush system to your toilet, you can reduce water consumption with each flush. This can help you save big time!
Inspect. Regularly inspect your system to ensure that it is running properly and that nothing is out of line. Also inspect to make sure you and your family are only using your toilet to flush waste and toilet paper, no trash!
How to Repair A Toilet That Is Constantly Dripping
Repairing a toilet that is constantly dripping is usually pretty straight forward. Follow these steps and you should be able to fix it.
- Turn off the water. Either shutoff the water valve near the base of the toilet, or turn off the main water source for the house.
- Flush the toilet. This will drain the tank and allow you to go in to inspect the flapper for damage or deterioration. It is here where you will be able to replace it if necessary.
- Check the flush valve seat. If the flapper is in good condition, it is possible that the flush valve seat has debris on it, preventing a proper seal. Clean the seat.
- Turn the water back on. After going through these steps, the water should stop dripping and return to normal!
If at the end of these steps, your water is still dripping, it is likely best to call in a professional plumber.

FAQ About San Diego Toilet Repair Services
How do I diagnose and repair a toilet that is slow to drain after flushing?
A toilet that is slow to drain after flushing is typically caused by a partial clog or obstruction to the toilet's pipes. To diagnose the issue, start by using a plunger to attempt to dislodge the clog. If that doesn't work, you may want to use a toiler auger to try and fix the issue. Be sure to use caution when using these plumbing tools, and if the problem still persists, you should call a professional plumber.
What should I do if my toilet won't flush properly or at all?
If your toilet is not flushing properly or at all, you can start by checking the water levels in the tank. Ensure the flush valve is functioning properly, inspect the flush handle and lift chain. If none of these things seem to be the issue, and the problem still persists, it could be a more serious problem that requires the attention of a professional plumber.
What are the common causes of a toilet that doesn't stop running after flushing?
A toilet that doesn't stop running after flushing is usually a problem with its internal components. The most common cause is a faulty flapper or flush valve that does not seal properly. Another cause could be a defective fill valve, which fails to shut off the water. These issues result in wasted water and higher water bills.
