After my toilet fills up, it will not stop running. It doesn’t run loud like when it is flushing. It sounds like a faucet that is left on a really low stream. I’ve tried flushing it several times to see if it would stop and it keeps doing it. Please help (and keep in mind I’m a girl and a college student )
It sounds like it is the ballcock. There should be a screw at the top ,ifbthere is turn it clock wise if there is no screw hold the rod on the tank ball with left hand and bend it down with right hand. Might need a new washer in ballcock are the flapper at the bottom of tank might be leaking, take a little egg dye and dump in tank and wait awhile and see if it comes in bowl, if it does you need new flapper, if not then you have to replace ballcock are washer. Send me your e-mail add. and I will send you info. on how to install ballcock. firstname.lastname@example.org
It is not the flapper because I did that test last night and I do not have a ballcock in my toilet. I do, however, have a floater that does not like to rise and has to be lifted in order to get the water to shut off. Now when it I raise it, the water doesn’t like to shut off. It doesn’t keep running in the toilet, but it keeps sounding like it’s running. Strange.
