How to fix most running toilets.

Dad, how do I?

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.

My parents got divorced when I was 5 and the toilet at my moms still runs to this day. The handle gets stuck and you have to wiggle it half way to get it to stop. I’m going to try this!

Thank you, Sir. I grew up without a father as well, and learning how to support my mother without anyone to “teach” me how to has been difficult. The time for her to support me has long passed, and now it’s time to repay her for all she’s done, and you’ve helped me to learn how.

My toilet was broken, but when you flushed it, the water would just keep running, and eventually overflow because it didn't go down, and it wouldn't stop going. In my old house it happened all the time, and we just turned off the water when hat happened. We never knew where the water was coming from because even when the water would be all out of the back of the toilet it didn't stop going, but eventually it would stop if we emptied the water. In our new house, it happened once and my grandpa fixed the toilet. He put in a new flusher thing, but it was too light so water would just constantly fill the bowl, so we had to keep it turned off. Then we got a steel flusher, and it flushed super strong and it's really nice

Thank you for this channel. I'm a grown 32yo woman who's dad was there was not emotionally. He also didn't believe in teaching me anything because I'm a girl. I was a single mom for 7yrs and its hard to have to pay for simple services like this or worse rely on men you know to come help.

Hi! I want to talk about very sensitive topic to mention in your videos: Please tell other man what all man should hear from their own fathers: "If you want to leave a girlfriend, end a stable relation you have a full right to do it. It is ok to end a relation that you dont like. But, very important, first make sure she is not pregnant. Wait till she has her next mens" I think many tragedys could be avoid this way.

Just for another case, You can check the other side of the rubber cover (The side that closes the hole) something it has calcium or something stuck to the rubber that makes it can't completely close the hole and make the water running all the time. Use some screwdriver to scatch it off then you don't have to buy a new rubber.

Dad, what if my tank and bowl are full, but there’s still a quieter sound of water running? I usually have to open the tank, tap the little thingy thing, and then it stops. I don’t know what the “thingy thing” is actually called...but it’s the top of that arm. Help me please!

My dad was never around much. And by the time we developed a relationship he was on his deathbed. This is such a sweet thing to do for us who missed out on that father figure role. My mom was a super mom so I learned a lot from her though. She did anything she put her mind to. Even if there were mistakes along the way.

I have a question. My toilet doesn't flush unless you insert water in the cup. What can I do to fix it? The worst part is that it is a new toilet and have over a year since my mom brought it and is already damage :(. I will appreciate if someone answer me.
