How To Fix A Leaky Toilet

July 2, 2015/ 0

At Jack Stephan, our Orange County and Los Angeles plumbers know that leaky toilets are a major hassle. So as a courtesy, our team has included some helpful information on how to get your leaky toilet repaired quickly.

There are several steps our experts recommend that you take in order to fix the leak including inspecting and testing the inlet valve and the floater. These items are supposed to keep water from overflowing, but a malfunction can lead to a leak. Our Orange County and Los Angeles plumbers suggest that you try to adjust the float to see if this solves the problem. If not, the float might be damaged and a replacement could need to be installed. Make sure that your inlet valve is okay by raising the rod holding the floater. If the water stops running, you will know that the inlet valve is functioning properly. If it does not, your ballcock will likely need to be replaced. If both the floater and inlet valve are working, then the toilet leak is likely caused by the flapper. Watch your tank to see if the water level drops quickly after you shut off the water supply. If it does, your flapper will need to be replaced.

If you are unable to detect the issue on your own or successfully make the repair, no need to worry. A dedicated Orange County or Los Angeles plumber from Jack Stephan can help.
