Why is my toilet always running?

There are a number of reasons why your toilet might my running all the time. Among the most common are:

  • Your toilet handle is broken
  • The float height needs to be adjusted
  • There’s an issue with the flapper seal causing it to leak
  • You have a faulty float switch
  • The refill tube needs to be shortened

If you’re a confident DIY enthusiast then you might want to take a look at our helpful guide on how to fix a running toilet.

However, if you can’t locate the cause of the issue yourself – or you simply want to save time and energy – it’s best to call upon the help of an experienced local plumber. They’ll be able to find the problem and fix it for you at the same time.
