water running in my toilet tank?

Why do I hear water running in my toilet tank?

The fill valve in the tank has a leak in it. If the fill valve has been replaced recently it is possible that it has been set too high. If the fill valve is old, it could do you no harm to replace it. Sometimes the shaft or wire that is used to set the level, corrodes off. By replacing it your problem should be fixed.

Step 1: Drain the Water

Turn the water supply off (located below and behind the tank).

Step 2: Disassemble the Tank

Remove the internal flapper covering the orifice where the water exits from the tank.

Step 3: Install the New Gasket and Valve

The old gasket is removed and replaced with a new gasket — follow the manufacturer’s instructions to make sure it goes on straight and does not cross-thread.
