Question about Plumbing
Toilet flushes, but water does not shut off
Posted by Anonymous on
This has 3 common reasons and easy fixes to each: 1, the stopper or flapper ball at the bottom where the water exits the tank may be worn or improperly seating on so the water keeps leaking down into the bowl. The tank will lose water, the supply will keep feeding the tank. Turn off the supply valve to the tank. It may help to apply a little petroleum jelly to the flapper ball to get a water-tight seal. If it's worn, replace it. If the water is running into the over-flow tube, you may be able to fix this by adjusting the water level by either turning a screw on the water supply assembly on some models, or by lowering the float ball or float coupling on the water supply stem assembly. If none of these seem to help, new inserts for tanks are easy to replace and relatively inexpensive.
