Turn off the water to the toilet before inspecting the flapper for problems. The flapper is a circular rubber seal that prevents water from draining into the toilet bowl from the tank. One of the most common causes of a running toilet is a problem with the flapper. Examine the flapper and its rim, as well as the flush valve, for any cracks or nicks.

You can remove the screw from the fill valve, which adjusts the water level on your float to prevent the fill valve from filling. Lift it, spin it, and pull it apart after you’ve got it. You should inspect your diaphragm valve to see if there is any trash within. If you need to wash it with soapy water and rinse it thoroughly, people do so. Replace the old fill valve in the same place in the tank. Place the valve in the tank’s opening where the water supply line enters. Connect the water supply line to the faucet. To tighten the nut, turn it in a clockwise motion.
