What if my water bill seems high?

The Number 1 cause of excess usage is a running toilet. Here are some helpful tips for this issue:

How to Fix a Running Toilet
The sound of a running toilet…it can keep you awake at night. If your toilet is running constantly, you could be wasting 200 gallons of water or more every day. (US EPA Water Sense) Not only is that running wasteful, it can also be expensive.
Troubleshoot the Problem
When the toilet runs, it means the water is flowing into the tank or bowl and not stopping. Either the toilet runs and never stops, or it stops for a while and then starts again without the help of a flush.
Steady Running
Is it the Handle or Lift Chain?
Jiggle the handle on your toilet. Does the running water sound stop? If so, you need to adjust the chain or the handle itself. Here's how:
• Check the mounting nut for the handle on inside of the tank. It may be sticking and not letting the handle get back in the right place when it’s let go. If that is the case, simply clean it.
• Check the chain to make sure it doesn’t have too much slack. If this happens, it can get caught under the flapper, causing water to leak down into the toilet.
• Check to be sure the chain isn’t broken. Often these get corroded or just weakened over time and break apart. Replace this with a new one so it hangs straight with about a 1/2″ in slack.
• If you don't have a chain in your tank, check to be sure your lift-wire isn't bent. If it is, try straightening it out until the toilet operates smoothly.

If you're still not sure or are unable to fix the leak yourself, it might be time to call a plumber!
