3 Problems Caused by a Running Toilet
If your toilet seems to be making a rushing or trickling noise, it’s likely that your toilet is running. A running toilet signals that your toilet isn’t working properly and needs to be replaced or repaired. While it may not seem like a big issue at first, it’s important to get your toilet fixed as soon as possible. Here are a few problems that could be caused by a running toilet:
1. Flooding. A running toilet can overflow without your knowledge, flooding your bathroom and home. If the water continues to run after it has overflowed, you could have a massive flood on your hands. If this happens when you are asleep or far away from home, it can become an even bigger problem.
2. Clogs. A constantly running toilet will weaken your water pressure, creating more opportunity for a toilet clog. This clog may occur in your pipes, causing build up over time, and eventually a blockage. Blockages can be damaging to your plumbing and expensive to fix.
3. Higher water bill. When you toilet is running, it’s constantly using new water. This can increase the cost of your water bill significantly.
