How to fix most running toilets.
Dad, how do I?
This is how you fix most toilets that won't stop running.
It is more than likely that the flapper isn't sealing properly. It gets a little more complicated (and the video would be a lot longer) if it is the float valve, so you should start by swapping out the flapper.

I HECKIN DID IT GUYS!!!! THANK YOU INTERNET DAD!!! ❤❤❤

    Just found out about your channel. You are a great teacher and encourager for apparently over a million people. I am so thankful you are doing this for all those kids who don't have or didn't have a Dad in their homes. Prayers for you as you go forward but don't let it overwhelm you. You are doing great but don't feel pressure if you need to miss a day or two.... I love watching you.

    A dad has a high calling, having the great responsibility to pass the baton on to the next generation. My dad always said a man should be a Prince, have high morals, high ideals and be a thinker! I thank God for my prince of a dad, he set the bar high, and I rejoiced in trying to attain the high prize! He taught me, but I just watched his every move, and that was how I learned to be a handy ‘wo’man in my own home. Let your girls and boys learn to use hammers and screwdrivers, sewing machines and stoves also! God bless.

    These videos are awesome!! Thank you! Can you make a video about that white tube thing that’s in the toilet? Mine seems to have popped out of place and now when the toilet is flushed, and water starts to fill back up, water sprays out and down the side of the toilet. I’m wondering if I need to replace it 🤔

    I learned about your channel from a link in Maria Shriver's "Sunday Paper." You were listed as her, "Yippee Moment of the Week." This is such a great channel...not just for those who need father figures, but for widows who were used to having their husbands as the go to fix-it guy. "Honey....How do I....?" What you're doing is amazing. With everything going on in the world right now, it's inspiring to see people like you bringing light into people's lives. You are such a gift! Thank you!

    @dad, how do I? What can I do if my toilet randomly lets out water every so often like an intermittent leak? I’ve changed the flapper several times and it still randomly lets out water into the toilet in light waves. 😕

    My parents got divorced when I was 5 and the toilet at my moms still runs to this day. The handle gets stuck and you have to wiggle it half way to get it to stop. I’m going to try this!

    Thank you, Sir. I grew up without a father as well, and learning how to support my mother without anyone to “teach” me how to has been difficult. The time for her to support me has long passed, and now it’s time to repay her for all she’s done, and you’ve helped me to learn how.
