2. Identifying the Problem

A few different things can cause a toilet that continually runs. Most commonly it stems from a faulty flapper. But it could also be due to the high water level in the tank, a water-logged float, or a broken valve. Each issue is easily fixable and the parts available from most hardware or household goods stores. You just have to know which part is causing the free-flowing water. To identify the problem, gently lift the lid off the tank and place it safely out of the way.
