Leaving it unattended for extended period of time could be costly
This customer called to tell us that his toilet would not start running. He tried jiggling the handle and that helped the problem temporarily, but it came back.
This is a common issue that we hear about on a consistent basis. If you experience the same thing, call us as soon as you can. If you don’t, you could be wasting a great deal of water – as much as 4,000 gallons a day – and money. Usually, a broken chain connecting the ball valve to the flushing handle is the problem. However, there are other times where the issue occurs because worn seals and valves have fallen apart.
If you have tried replacing the chain and ball valve and your toilet still continues to run, call Essig as soon as you can.
