A silent leak in your toilet can waste several thousand gallons of water each year. Replace old toilets with models that use 1.6 gallons or less per flush. That’s a ‘nice save’ for Minnesota’s water future. It’s important for each of us to save water, every day. Low flow toilets can help with water conservation.
Follow these steps to discover if your toilet leaks: 1. Lift the lid off your toilet tank. 2. Place 3-4 drops of food coloring into the toilet tank. 3. Do not flush or disturb the toilet for one or two hours. 4. After one to two hours, observe the toilet bowl. If the color you placed into the tank shows up in the bowl, you have a leak. See your hardware dealer or plumber to obtain a replacement valve or kit.
