leaky toilet


Our toilet has been leaking. I could see the water running into the bowl when the toilet wasn't in use. So I replace the flap that opens and closes the water intake into the bowl, but it is still leaking into the bowl although not as much. I've run my finger over the opening and don't feel any chips. What else can I do to stop this seepage into the bowl.

It's the valve assembly or the float needs adjustment or is water logged. Usually the valves aren't servicable. They are pretty cheap though. Get one the right height/length.

Maybe it's the flush valve. I have seen them get hair line cracks.

I'm assuming the valve assembly governs the water level. There is no float. I discovered the water level goes to the top of the vertical tube (overflow tube ?)and is actually seeping in. Since there is no float how do I adjust the water level
