Why Is My Toilet Leaking?

Do you have issues with your toilet? Is it frequently leaky? Does it cause nasty, wet messes? Stop wondering why your toilet is leaking today, with answers from our helpful Ventura County plumbers at Dutton Plumbing.

Reasons Your Toilet May Be Leaking

  • A Faulty Supply Line: Mechanical damage to supply lines can put a major strain on your toilet. Oftentimes, when joints in a supply line become dislodged and break down, water starts to drip out. The rubber lining in a supply line can also spring a leak after years of use.
  • A Cracked Tank: When a toilet tank is hit hard enough to crack, ongoing leaking often becomes an issue. As the valve continues to replenish water, it may be hard to notice as small or hairline cracks let out a little but ongoing stream of water.
  • A Stuck Flapper: A stuck flapper can cause major leaks when your flush handle gets stuck. This will result in the fill valve continuing to supply the tank with water even after you have finished flushing, causing overflow and leakage.
  • A Worn-Out Flapper: Leaks from worn-out flappers can be hard to detect. As minerals build on your flapper over time, it will start to warp. While it is not easy to replace this part, it is a good idea to periodically check whether your flapper is still in good condition, as the more damaged this part is, the greater risk you run of experiencing serious leaks.
  • A Worn-Out Fill Valve: Fill valves also wear down over time because of mineral deposits. When enough builds up to warp the fill valve, it can stop working properly, preventing your toilet from shutting off and causing leakage.
  • A Broken/Dislodged Float: A float is the hollow ball that rests on the surface of the water in your toilet tank. If it cracks or is not lined up properly, it may cause the fill valve to run, which, in turn, can lead to leaks.
  • Rubber Lining Defects: As the rubber linings in your toilet break down, they may also start leaking and loosening connections. You should check your rubber linings and other toilet connections occasionally, otherwise you run the risk of toilet leakage.
