Phantom Flushing When you hear a flushing sound even when nobody’s using the toilet, there’s probably a leak coming from the tank. Confirm this by putting a few drops of food coloring into the tank. When the water in the toilet bowl turns the same color the presence of leak is verified. Douglas Orr Plumbing (305) 887-1687 www.OrrPlumbing.com

Douglas Orr Plumbing (305) 887-1687 www.OrrPlumbing.com Partial Flushing If the toilet is not flushing completely, it’s possible that the flapper valve is waterlogged or it could be dropping too fast. Watch the flapper valve while you’re flushing the toilet. It should stay up and not more than 80 percent of the water in the tank should be drained. Otherwise, replace the flapper valve.

Douglas Orr Plumbing (305) 887-1687 www.OrrPlumbing.com Whistling While Refilling If you hear some kind of whistling sound while the tank is getting filled up, you should have the toilet tank fill valve checked. As the ball floats up and the water fill valve slowly closes, vibrations are produced and therefore the whistling sound reverberates. To solve this, replace the valve.

Douglas Orr Plumbing (305) 887-1687 www.OrrPlumbing.com Reduced Water Level In The Bowl When the water level in the bowl lowers down, it may due to a partial clog in the toilet colon. Some of the common culprits include toilet paper, body wipes or worse --- an old cloth or rag. In some cases, however, a toilet bowl water level that gradually decreases is caused by a crack in the toilet colon’s interior or the very drain pipe itself.
