A Leaking Toilet?
Are you a homeowner? Have you experienced a toilet leak before? A leaking toilet can become a serious issue in your home. With plumbing issues coming from a leaking toilet can cause water damage to occur in your home. There are many reasons why a toilet can leak; to help you prevent problems, here are a few common reasons why your toilet might be leaking:
- Supply lines direct the water from the toilet into the pipes. Over time, the joints of this line and the rubber lining can wear out or rupture, which can lead to water escaping and ultimately damaging the area around the toilet.
• Flappers can also become damaged and can lead to a large loss of water in the tank. Sometimes the flush handle gets stuck and allows the toilet tank to continually fill with water. This can lead to overflow and expensive water bills.
• The float is the small ball that floats in the toilet tank. If the float is damaged or cracked, this can mess up the entire flushing process.
