Leaky Toilets can Cause High Water Bills

This past weekend I cleaned the bathroom.  I mean really cleaned the bathroom.  Not just wipe out the sink.  I was so impressed with the results that I wanted to barricade it so that nobody would go in it and mess it up, but that would have been impractical and inconvenient  After I finished my cleaning extravaganza, I went to the restroom and flushed the toilet.  To my utter dismay, as soon as I flushed the toilet, water from the back leaked.  I was upset that it leaked all over my clean floor.  After talking over the problem with my father, he gave me another reason to be upset.

Every time I flushed the toilet, I was losing energy and money.  This may seem a bit obvious but I had not realized how much that little amount of water that seems annoying but fairly inconsequential could add up.  I did a little research and though I know you cannot trust everything that you read on the internet I found this staggering statistic: “1 Home leaking toilet can leak 25,000 gallons per month or more.”  I found this on ABT Water Management.  That is crazy! Though this quote does not specify what kind of toilet leak that was, the fact of the matter is that a little leak can cause some big problems for your wallet.

Due to the fact that my toilet is more of a commercial model, it was suggested to me that it is probably the Sloan Valve that is leaking.  If you have a leaky toilet, it is best to get it looked at by a professional in order to ensure that it is fixed correctly and to see if they spot any other leaks.  An annual plumbing inspection can also help with this.  If you have a leak toilet (or faucet), contact Flame to get it corrected right away!
