Causes

Checking for a Toilet Leak

Since a toilet is a piece of plumbing fixture, that sometimes go wrong. Here are five common causes of toilet failure:

If you can’t clear a blocked toilet with a plunger, a plumber may be required to use a snake to clear the blockage. Mineral build up inside the bowl of an older toilet can also cause lazy flushing of an otherwise unblocked toilet. Toilet replacement by a licensed plumber is the best option for older toilets that regularly flush poorly.

A leaking flush valve at the bottom of the toilet tank is one common cause of water that keeps running continually into a toilet tank and bowl. A defective or poorly-adjusted fill valve can also allow water to continue filling the tank without stopping. There’s limited risk of water damage involved in these repairs, so some homeowners tackle it themselves.  A plumber is also an option.

Even a small water leak from the pipe or hose that connects to the toilet tank is serious because it can develop into a large and damaging leak. The water supply will need to be shut off, the connection repaired, then the water turned back on.  Most homeowners require a plumber for this task.

If a leak appears where the toilet tank connects to the back of the bowl, the tank-to-bowl gasket needs to be replaced. The tank will need to be drained and the tank removed from the toilet bowl to install this gasket. Most people hire a plumber for this work.

Most toilets have a valve on the pipe connected to the toilet tank and shutting off this valve will stop a toilet from overflowing. If your toilet doesn’t have a shutoff valve, shut off the main water supply valve for your house. Don’t turn this valve back on until the toilet blockage is cleared and the toilet bowl is emptying properly.

Toilet tips and solution

number 1

Drop a few drops of food colouring into the tank

number 2

Wait 20 – 30 minutes

number 3

If you see colour in your toilet bowl, you have a running toilet leak.

Don’t have any food colouring handy? Inspect the inside of your toilet bowl with a flashlight. If you see lines of water streaming down your bowl, you’ve got a leak.
