Toilets

Old or worn–out toilet flapper (e.g., valve seal) is a common cause for a toilet leak. Flappers are inexpensive rubber parts that can build up minerals or decay over time. Replacing them can be a quick and easy fix for your water woes. To fix this leak, consult your local hardware store, home improvement retailer, or licensed plumber. 

  • Tip: Bring the old flapper to the hardware store for comparison to make sure you buy a new flapper that fits your toilet model. You can also check the owner's manual or the manufacturer's website for the appropriate replacement part number for the flapper.
