Flush valve (flapper) shown above.
Faulty toilets can be attributed to high water bills in the home, and the homeowner may not be aware of the situation. Toilets may continually run or run intermittently. Not only can this condition keep you up at night, but it can give you huge water bills. The two reasons for leaky toilets are a faulty flush valve (flapper), or a faulty fill valve.
Flush valves (flappers) wear out overtime and consequently allow the water to pass thru the valve seat.
Fill valves have floats on them, which leak overtime and stop working.
