Property Managers:

Undetected RUNNING TOILETS are the #1 cause of your properties’ high-water bills

  • BUT if a tenant KNOWS the toilet is running, the tenant CAN and usually WILL correct the problem by “Jiggling the Handle”
  • Tenants don’t see running toilets as THEIR problem and therefore usually DON’T report them…
  • …which means that THE PROBLEM is almost never actually FIXED
  • AND, running toilets are almost always REPEAT OFFENDERS
  • SO, when their toilets run again (and they will), the LeakAlertor 6000 will let them know almost immediately, audibly telling YOUR TENANTS that they need to “Jiggle the Handle” before they leave the bathroom

For more detailed information about how the LeakAlertor 6000 can immediately start decreasing your properties’ water bills, click here!

As a Property Manager, here’s what you need to know:

4 ½ Gallons-Per-Minute is the average amount of water wasted by an undetected running toilet.
THAT’S 6,480 GALLONS EVERY 24 HOURS!

So How Does the LeakAlertor 6000 Solve this Problem?
The LeakAlertor 6000 will continuously flash and beep as soon as the running toilet is detected, which is usually before your tenant has left the bathroom. That continuous alert let’s them know to “Jiggle the Handle”, which will correct the problem 95% of the time.

But Why Does a Running Toilet Go Undetected? And Seriously, How Common is this Problem?
Bathroom fans, background noise, music, “Quiet” fill valves, and “Quiet” toilets, can all mask or muffle the sound of a running toilet. Those who are hearing-impaired might not notice a running toilet. And as for children: they simply may not know any better. Before the 6000 was developed, no one actually knew how often running toilets occurred and went undetected…and quite frankly, we didn’t know, either. Once the 6000 started shipping, we discovered running toilets happen so frequently, and repeatedly, that they were responsible for more high-water bills than all other indoor water losses causes combined. For more detailed information provided by actual property managers, please contact us.

What About Regular Leaks and Faulty Fill Valves that Bleed Water into the Tank and Down the Overflow?
We got that, too. The LeakAlertor 6000 produces a “Non-Emergency” alert when those less catastrophic leaks occur. Here’s how it works: When a minor problem (like a leak or faulty fill valve) occurs, the LeakAlertor 6000 will flash and beep for the first 4 or 5 seconds of the flush cycle, and then go quiet. If you download and provide your tenants with our Leave Behind Brochure, they will know to call you to request a non-emergency repair.

One More Question About Running Toilets: What’s the Most Common Cause?
The chain, but it’s not always because the length is too long. We like to call it “Slap Handle”. People in a hurry and (most) children tend to “slap” the handle, which can result in the chain getting caught on the handle clip. There are actually 7 common reasons why a running toilet occurs… click here to see the list!

LeakAlertor alerts you
BEFORE YOU WASTE MONEY on high water bills!

How can the LeakAlertor decrease my water bill?
Running toilets are the #1 cause of a high water bill. When this problem occurs, most people actually know to “Jiggle the Handle” to temporarily fix the issue (or in a worst-case scenario, turn off the water). What many people don’t know is when to jiggle the handle. (Click here to see what causes toilets to run.) When you install the LeakAlertor 6000, you will always know when your toilet is running. You will be alerted before you leave the bathroom, preventing a high water bill.

Why are we talking about running toilets? Aren’t leaking flappers the biggest water wasters? Even my water company and the EPA say leaks can waste 50 to 200 gallons per day, right?
Yes, they do, and a badly leaking flapper can waste a lot of water (200 gallons per day). But think about these numbers: at 4.5 gallons per minute, a wide-open flapper will take less than one hour to waste as much water as a badly leaking flapper does in an entire day! And if a wide-open flapper goes undetected for just one day, it can waste 6,480 gallons of water! But if leaking flappers or faulty fill valves are your concern, the LeakAlertor also detects those problems and alerts you when to make a repair.

Why hasn’t anybody talked about running toilets before?
Before the LeakAlertor 6000 was developed, no one actually knew how often undetected running toilets occurred… and quite frankly, we didn’t know either. Once the LeakAlertor 6000 started shipping, we discovered running toilets happen so frequently, and repeatedly, that they were responsible for more high-water bills than all other indoor water loss causes combined!

Can’t I just use the dye tablets my water company gave me to alert me to problems?
No. Dye tablets are only effective in detecting slow, consistent leaks. Bu here’s the good news: the LeakAlertor not only detects running toilets, but also detects slower leaks of all kinds!

How do I get more information about the LeakAlertor 6000?
We’ve created a series of videos to help demonstrate the simple installation and operation of the LeakAlertor. The videos are on the Support Page here. These videos should answer all of your questions.

Dye Tablets

5 Reasons why dye tablets are not accurate:

The LeakAlertor takes away the frustration of high water bills, and saves you money! Unlike dye tablets, the LeakAlertor is constantly at work checking for silent leaks, wide-open flappers, and faulty fill valves. It alerts you before you leave the bathroom with a “beep” and blinking LED during the flush cycle.

1) Errors are made in using dye tablets.
Often times, dye tablets are used incorrectly. Some people have mistakenly put the tablet in the toilet bowl rather than the toilet tank…test ruined! Some have put the tablet in the tank, and flushed the toilet immediately…test ruined! Some people drop the tablet in the tank, but then walk away and forget…again, test ruined!

2) Not all toilet leaks are caught by dye tablets.
Dye tablets can only detect one type of leak – a leaking flapper – and only if it’s leaking at the time of the test. However, stuck flush valves, wide-open flappers, phantom flushes, and running toilets are all common leaks not detected by dye tablets.

3) By the time you use a dye tablet your toilet may have already been leaking for weeks, or even months.
Often times, homeowners don’t realize a toilet is leaking because they think a leak should mean there is water on the floor. However, the most common leaks occur either at the flapper, or where the tank and bowl connect. These leaks occur inside the toilet, and are almost always invisible.

4) Intermittent leaks are often missed by dye tablets.
Just because your toilet isn’t leaking at the moment of testing doesn’t mean it wasn’t leaking an hour ago, or won’t be leaking an hour from now. Also, when a flapper first begins to leak, the amount may be too small for dye tablets to detect.

5) It’s not easy to get dye tablets.
Few hardware stores actually sell them, and it’s a hassle to contact your water utility for free tablets. You can buy them on-line, but you have to pay for shipping and wait for them to arrive. Meanwhile, your toilet continues to leak, and your water bill gets even higher!

7 Reasons why the flapper/flush-valve won't close:

1)  The flapper is “stuck” to the overflow pipe.
One observable symptom: it is not bobbing or floating in the water, regardless of the water height, and appears to be partially or fully upright.

2)  The chain is tangled.
A chain link can get stuck on the metal clip or loop over the top of the lever arm. Although an improper chain length causes many of these problems, “slapping” the flush handle can also cause the chain to hang up.

3)  A clogged drain/obstructed pipe produces back pressure through the flush valve seat.
The obstruction doesn’t allow the water level inside the tank to drop low enough for the flapper to seat properly. In this instance, the flapper appears to “hover” in the water above the flush valve seat. A clogged or obstructed drain pipe is the most common reason for toilets to overflow the bowl.

4)  A “universal” replacement flapper is purchased.
When a “universal” replacement flapper is purchased, it does not seat properly on the flush valve. Flappers should be purchased according to the type of flush valve used because universal flappers can leak and/or fail to seat up to 50% of the time.

5)  The flush handle/lever is old, defective, or “sticking” to the inside of the toilet tank.
Old or defective equipment can result in the flapper being held open.

6)  The flapper hinges are weakened and/or degraded.
This allows the flapper to slide to the side and not seat properly on the flush valve. (Note: the water flow from the fill valve can also push the flapper to one side if it is above 60 PSI.)

7)  A flapper’s buoyancy doesn’t become “negative” until the tank completely evacuates.
This does not allow the flapper to seat properly. Although there are several known causes (including toilet design), the most common is a clogged or obstructed drain pipe, which creates back pressure into the tank through the flush valve.


5 Common reasons why wide-open flappers often go undetected:

1)  No one is home to hear it running.
Often times, a person will use the bathroom before they leave their home (or business). In this case, a wide-open flapper would not be detected until the person returned home and realized the problem. This could be hours, or even the following day.

2)  The bathroom is not used frequently.
A wide-open flapper in secondary bathrooms (a finished basement or guest bathroom) can go undetected for days or weeks, wasting a tremendous amount of water and resulting in a high water bill.

3)  Hearing impaired/challenged people may fail to recognize a problem exists.
People with moderate to severe hearing loss may be unable to hear the running water. People afflicted with tinnitus may be unable to distinguish the sound of the running water from their tinnitus.

4)  The sound of the toilet tank refilling is a muted hum.
The initial flush of a toilet is loud, brief, and occurs while the user is still in the bathroom. However, the refilling of the toilet is quieter, prolonged, and typically finishes after the user has left the bathroom. Therefore, the user is unaware when the flapper remains wide-open.

5)  Background noise can easily mask the sound of a wide-open flapper or flush valve.
Examples include central air conditioners and HVAC systems (while the fan is operating); ceiling and window fans; music and/or TV; etc.
