Running toilets: It is possible for a toilet to run without someone really noticing. Sometimes it's a big leak and sometimes it isn't. Many times the water utility is in fact the first to notice
How can you discover if your toilet leaks? 1. Lift off the lid from your toilet seat. 2. Place three or four drops of ordinary food coloring into the toilet tank (note - do not use dye - it could stain). 3. Do not flush or otherwise disturb the toilet for one or two hours or longer. At the end of the waiting period, observe the toilet bowl. If the color you placed into the tank shows up in the bowl, you have a leak.
