The Problems of a Constantly Running Toilet

Don’t be caught off guard by an enormous water bill due to a running toilet!

Besides being annoying, a constantly running toilet can cost a lot of money over time. Even a small leak can waste as much as a thousand gallons of water a year, which is a lot of money to flush down the drain. The good news is that when you do have a problem, our team at Ray Lusk Plumbing is always a phone call or mouse click away.

Our team of plumbing specialists are the most customer-focused in the business, and we can ease your mind in no time. We can diagnose your problem so you’ll know the extent of plumbing repair necessary, install new toilet hardware, repair seals or gaskets, and so much more. And because we calculate our rates by the job, not by the hour, you’ll know before we ever start exactly what your cost will be. Call today for a free estimate to fix your running toilet and stop high water bills in their tracks!

In many cases, fixing a running toilet is a relatively quick process that involves replacing the mechanisms inside the tank, and our technicians will be in and out in a flash. But we also encourage you to keep in mind that older toilets can be wasteful, even if they’re in good repair, using as much as six gallons of water per flush. Many newer models of toilets use increased water pressure to perform more efficiently, and are designed to use only 1.6 gallons of water per flush. This doesn’t mean that you need to replace the toilet right away, but it is something to keep in mind when planning for future renovations. And while you’re at it, you might also look into investing in low-flow shower heads, which can lead to significant savings on your water bill!
