At Messina Solutions, we believe that homeowners should know what the systems in their home do and how to solve common problems that arise. Although you can always rely on us for home improvement services, we've compiled this information to empower you to complete simple home improvement projects yourself.
Is your toilet running? Before you schedule home maintenance services, try the dye test:
- Add food coloring to the water in the tank
- Wait a few minutes
- Check the toilet bowl for food coloring
If the water has changed color, your toilet is leaking. Contact us at 508-294-2297 to get your toilet fixed.
