Here's the problem:
1. Sometimes toilet doesn't flush sometimes because tank is empty. I have
to take off cover and moves somethings around to make the water refill.
2. Toilet runs. Jiggling the handle helps, but not enough.
Anybody know how I can fix either of these problems?
Presuming it is a typical North american toilet?
Maybe the float catching on something and not allowing water to
flow in and refill the tank?
On other hand if water is running or dribbling through all the
time check operation of or replace the flapper valve; the flap
valve that allows water to flush rapidly into the toiley bowl.
Usually pretty easy to diagnose by looking at it. Spare parts
pretty reasonable too. If not get a competent friend or a
Often, it's just the chain from the flush handle being long
enough that it gets caught under the flapper valve.
I suggest that you take the free course in Toiletology.
