This unfortunate uptick in disrepair is nothing to panic over, but it is something that needs to be addressed. If homeowners are worried about their plumbing systems, they should contact a highly trained professional plumber at their earliest convenience. Parker & Sons list a few of the common plumbing issues that may arise. It is not uncommon to experience 'phantom flushes' with an older toilet that has recently seen a good deal of use. This issue occurs when there is a small leak between the water tank and the toilet bowl. Parker & Sons comments that this is often an easy problem to fix. It is often caused by a worn flapper or seal. Replacement is a simple task that may not even require the services of a professional plumber. Water trickling into the tank is another common toilet problem linked to overuse. This could become more problematic than water leaking into the toilet bowl as the tank will not empty itself automatically like the toilet bowl. Parker & Sons advises that this is an issue that may require the attention of a professional plumber. However, homeowners may be able to diagnose trickling tanks on their own. Parker & Sons notes that they may be able to listen for the telltale hiss of water leaking in through the intact valve.
