Is Your Toilet Running? You May Need a Replacement
Is your toilet running? Well, then you better go catch it!
Okay, okay, we joke, but the fact remains that a running toilet may be a sign of a number of home plumbing issues. We use our residential toilets multiple times each and every day. At 3 Mountains Plumbing, we understand that you may not spend a great deal of time thinking (or wanting to think) about how much your household toilet or toilets are in use, but the truth is that they quite naturally suffer a great deal of wear and tear over time.
Running toilets are easy enough to repair, but if it’s happening frequently, it’s most likely time for a new toilet installation.
