How would I know if my toilet was leaking?

Here are signs to look for:

  1. A toilet that is not in use should be silent. After flushing and the tank refills, once the fill valve shuts off, it should be silent.
  2. You have to move or jiggle the flush handle to make the water stop running after flushing.
  3. After flushing the toilet, it won’t fill again and/or you can’t flush it again.
  4. The flush handle needs to be held down while flushing in order for it to complete the flushing process.
  5. The flush handle is loose.
  6. A trickle of water keeps running into the toilet bowl long after it has been flushed.
  7. At seemingly random times your toilet sounds like it has water running into it.
  8. Mold or spotting has appeared along the wall behind the toilet tank.
