Many households deal with a fickle toilet that runs on and off. Not only is it annoying, but it can cause financial strain too. A running toilet is like flushing good money down the drain. If you need help with a running toilet, Kew Forest Plumbing, a Richmond Hill plumber is available to help.
It is easy to ignore that running toilet until you get the water bill. A toilet that runs constantly can waste 200 gallons of water a day, which translates to several hundred dollars a month. Maybe you have one that just runs intermittently, so you haven’t done much about it. Don’t be surprised when your water bill is $100 more than usual, because even moderate leaks add up.
Unfortunately, a high water bill may be the best case scenario. We have had situations where a homeowner did not know the toilet was clogged, it continued to run after they left the home, and they came home to a flooded house.
Some homeowners have tried to tackle this repair on their own, only to end up frustrated. They sell assorted toilet parts at the home improvement store, so how hard can it be? Despite following directions and even watching YouTube videos, some toilets are bound and determined to act up. Unfortunately then there is aggravation that money was invested into a project, and the problem was not fixed.
Plumbing is a very tricky thing, and sometimes it just takes some experience to know what is the best fix for the situation. If you have a running toilet in your home, the best solution is to call a licensed, insured plumber. In the long run, it may save you money because you will not have to be subject to high water bills or repair parts that did not get the job done.
