How to fix most running toilets.

This is how you fix most toilets that won't stop running.
It is more than likely that the flapper isn't sealing properly. It gets a little more complicated (and the video would be a lot longer) if it is the float valve, so you should start by swapping out the flapper.

  • That toilet is literally like the deep end of the pool🤯 Australian toilets are legit like a kids pool compared to this

  • Hey add that if you haven’t (ever) cleaned inside the cistern and it’s full of yuckiness, don’t be afraid of it, it won’t kill you- add a Blue tablet or a cup and a half of bleach and come back in an hr or 2, flush and have a look inside as it fills up. It should be cleaner than before and won’t be too hard to clean up in there.

  • Really loving your channel and the idea behind it. I grew up without a father since my teenage years, so I've found out that it's the simple and mundane stuff that nobody really tells you about, other than your dad.

  • Im generally a DIY person, ive even built my own basement from scratch (framing, drywall, electrical, celing, etc) but i have never installed a toilet before, never did any plumbing outside changing the kitchen faucet. i had a partially running toilet as described in this video so i went out and got a new flapper and it works, its surprisingly simple but i didnt think of doing it until watching this video so thank you!

  • I’ve had a replacement flapper sitting by a toilet to which I’ve had the water turned off for a ridiculously long time b/c I didn’t know how to do the swap. Rather than listen to the water keep filling, I just took it out of service. Happily it’s not the only toilet so another has been available ... but when I watched this video, my toilet was back in business in less than two minutes. Thanks - from a widow who has added yet another skill to the repertoire!

  • So happy to have found your channel from a write up at 'Country Living!' My dad is no longer here, and I miss him terribly. I always called him for advice on how to fix things, to make sure I wasn't being ripped off on car repairs, etc. He LOVED knocking down walls. :) I look forward to checking out the rest of your videos.

  • You are such an awesome person. You deserve a lot more credit for what you do. What you do is so kind, your kids are lucky to have a dad like you❤️ my dad is in my life, but I've heard of people who don't have their dad in their life. This channel is so amazing and sweet I literally don't have words. Keep doing everything you do!

  • That’s an interesting mechanism, the ones in the UK and I believe most of Europe have different mechanisms that are adjustable as you can get the same problem if the tank fills up too much. And it’s usually the whole flush and valve kit that’s replaced and costs around £20 ($24.60), great video btw
