Denver Plumbing Tips: Bathroom Toilets

You can fairly easily check for hidden leaks in your toilets. All you have to do is apply a few drops of food coloring into the tank atop the toilet. You will see color appear in the bowl in about half an hour if the toilet is leaking.

To prevent sticking, turn the water supply valves underneath your toilets and sinks. You can also manually check if your toilets are flushing properly. If you find that the handle must be held down in order to flush the entire bowl or that it perhaps has to be tinkered with to stop running water, then you probably need to replace old, defective parts in the tank.
