What to Check for Leaking Toilets

Reading Time: < 1 minute

An average leaking toilet will waste up to 78,000 gallons of water per year or over 212 gallons a day. That’s enough to fill two swimming pools. Toilet flushing accounts for 38% of household water use. That’s a big percentage of your water bill.

Here are a few things to check for a leaky toilet:

1) A loose lever
2) A faulty flapper inside the tank
3) The Overflow of the pipe or flush valve
4) Check the Fill Valve won’t shut off
5) Noisy refilling toilet

In Hawaii, a sign reads, “If it’s yellow, let it mellow. If it’s brown, flush it down.” Now most people and probably all tenants are not willing to do that. So please check your toilets for any leaks.

TIP: Until it gets fixed, you can close the water valve between the wall and toilet between uses. If you’re looking for a handyman or better property manager, contact us at no obligation. (714) 657-3853 or click here for an appointment.
