Toilet leakage repairing

Water leakage is a common problem all over the world. Some people are fed up of hiring the plumbers. If you are one of them then there is no need to worry. One way to find if there is a leakage in the tank is to add red food coloring inside the tank. Check it after one hour and if the color of the water is light pink it means it has a leakage.

One solution is to replace the flapper of the water tank. First, you must stop the water supply before replacing the flapper. You must empty the tank with the help of flushing the toilet. You can then use a towel to make it totally dry. You should then remove the lever chain and then replace the old flapper with the new one. It is time to reconnect the chain and turn on the water supply.
