The toilet is one of the most important fixtures in your home. Although toilets are sturdy and reliable components of the plumbing system, it’s a rare homeowner or apartment-dweller that never has any problems with a toilet. Clogging is perhaps the most common toilet trouble, but it is far from the only one. The tank, for example, can make all sorts of strange noises, or water can run continuously.
If you're a do-it-yourself kind of person, learning some quick fixes can keep you from calling the plumber. Turn off the water to the toilet by turning the knob on the shut off valve to the right until it stops. The valve should be located a few inches above the floor on the left when facing the toilet.
Remove the tank lid and store it out of the way so that it does not get broken. Be very careful because they are NOT a standard item that can be easily replaced, especially if you have an older toilet.
