If you want your home to be environmentally friendly, there is no better option than a dual flush toilet. A dual flush toilet is considered to be a good environmental choice because it assists with water-saving.
One problem you might experience with a dual flush toilet is it constantly running after being flushed. Let’s look at the kind of problems you might face if your dual flush toilet is continually running after flushing.
Debris Build Up
One common issue you may face is debris. When dirt and other particles mix in your water supply and enter your toilet tank, it can cause the fill valve to malfunction. If you’re not sure, check inside the cistern for evidence of debris.
If you find any debris, then you can carefully remove it using a non-abrasive sponge or cloth. When there’s no visible debris remaining, retry the flush to check whether the problem is solved or not.
Toilet Seal Trouble
Another problem you may face that can cause constant running water is the seal. As time passes, the rubber seal in the cistern can become brittle. To check if this is the problem:
- first, switch off the water supply
- thoroughly empty the water from the cistern
- check the condition of the seal.
- If there’s any crack or crumbling, the seal needs replacing.
Replacing the seal can be tricky, so we recommend hiring a professional plumber for this kind of job.
