Leaking sound from toilet tank all the time


Hey guys!

Just a quickie - I've got a toilet that CONSTANTLY sounds leaky, so I popped the lid off the tank, and the little nozzle that feeds water into the tank is always dribbling just a little water in, no matter if it's full or just been flushed. I turned off the water at the base, and it stopped, but that's not any kind of lasting solution. Any ideas?

Thanks!

G

Go buy yourself a new Fluidmaster flush valve. About $10.00 and a 1/2 hour or less fix.

And, as many of the plumbing experts recommend here...take this opportunity to replace the supply hose from the valve.
