Out of respect for the fact that this
must be pretty important to you
since you have waited nearly three
years to post this...

Does your buddy know that the
ballcock has adjustments?
Has he checked the tank ball/flapper valve?

Or maybe he should just try one of these

and turn it into a nice fountain?
Good luck.

Question

Re: Toilet Keeps Running...


OP is probably dead by now... j/k (due to long-time suffocation of 3-year waiting for your right answers, his business/project failure, and ... this failed economy) etc..

StopLeak. You can get it at AutoZone. Don't tell anyone though. It's a plumber's trade secret.

Hopefully you catch the toilet before it runs out the door.

Look, these guys are rediculous, I apologize.

The only real thing you can do with a running toilet is discipline it, crate training works well...or you can just give it a quick smack in the ass to get yer point across.
If this problem continues, get the toilet whisperer, that guy with the show on Discovery er sumthin'.
