In this video clip, I will show you a quick fix for a toilet that runs. If you have a toilet that constantly runs, the first thing that I would recommend in doing is go ahead and remove the top of the tank. If you look inside, you will see a pole connected to a float. If your toilet constantly runs, it could be because this float is set too low or too high. If I push this float down, it will raise the water level and the toilet will think that it needs more water, so it will continue to run. It could be on yours that the float is just set too low so that it constantly runs. What you should do in a scenario like this is take the float and bend it up just a little ways so your float will sit a little bit higher.
