Plumbing - Running Water in Toilet
When water continuously flows into the toilet bowl, this can waste a lot of water, costing the homeowner a lot of money, so it should be fixed as soon as possible.
One of the causes may be a damaged float ball or float rod. When the tank re-fills, the float ball is supposed to rise with the water level and shut off the water at a certain point. But, if the float ball or float rod aren't working correctly, they won't shut off the water like they should. If this is the case, you simply need to replace the damaged part. It's easy to do, just turn off the water supply and flush the toilet to empty the tank. Remove the old float ball and/or rod by unscrewing counterclockwise. Screw on the new part and turn on the water supply. If the water supply is too high, it can be adjusted by bending the float rod down, or if the water supply is too low, bend the float rod up.
