If you can see dripping water again, consult a professional plumber to make sure that it can be fixed properly.
- Low Water Pressure: When you water pressure begins to slow down, there might be an object that obstructs the water pipes and prevent it from pouring the exact amount of water. Or there might be a serious breakdown on the main pipeline.
- Running Toilet: This might be the reason why your water bill increases. Actually, it is very difficult to detect if leaks occur in toilets because its pipes and tubes are located under the bowl. To distinguish a leak in your bathroom, just simply add few drops of food coloring. After 20 minutes, see the color of the water. If you see a tinted color in the bowl, there might be a problem.
