Toilet Tank Leak

Know Your Air and Water No 27A small amount of food coloring added to the tank water will help you determine whether the tank ball in the bottom of the tank is leaking. If the coloring seeps into the toilet bowl, the ball or flapper over the discharge opening is not watertight.

If the rubber tank ball in a toilet does not fit tightly over the discharge opening, a defective ball, irregular seat or bent lift wires may be responsible.
