When you have water slowly and almost silently flowing into your toilet bowl, you could have a few bad parts in the toilet tank. Usually, you will not hear this type of water leak. It is when the toilet is done flushing and is quiet when you can visually look into the toilet bowl and see a little bit of water running into the bowl. This wastes water and can get worse over time. Fix it ASAP to avoid water on floor.
The water that is slowly flowing into your toilet bowl is from a faulty component in the toilet tank. There are a few things that will make this happen:
1. Toilet Flapper needs Cleaned, Aligned, or Replaced
2. Toilet Water Fill Valve (Where water comes in from wall) is Leaking in Water Slowly into Bowl – Replace It
3. Toilet Small Plastic Water Fill Tube is not Aligned Properly
4. Toilet water gets too high in tank and overflows – Adjust Float, bend the bar holding it if needed
We recommend to buy a complete toilet overhaul replacement kit instead of buying the flapper, water fill valve, rust proof bolts, small water fill tube, new float, new float metal bar, tank flush lever, new flapper chain, and the rubber seals separately. A toilet overhaul kit will cost about $20 dollars and will fix all of your toilet leaking issues.
We figure, why replace one part by guessing what is causing the leak? Replace everything with new and not only will this fix your leaking issue but you will have all new parts in your toilet making your toilet like new again. No more worrying about a leaking toilet. Just get a replacement kit and be done with it. Spend $20 bucks and no more worries.

6 thoughts on “Water Is Slowly Leaking Into Toilet Bowl – How To Fix”
Have a K-4353-96.
1. Flush – works fine
2. Fills tank, and stops filling. All good
3. Continuous drip under lip of bowl for about 30 minutes, then stops.
4. There is no refilling, and water line does not drop.
My guess is that the dripping water is coming from the trough where the fill holes around the tank are located.
Should I pass a brush into the holes thinking that there is an obstruction that empties little by little?
I don’t believe it is a leak.
About an hour after flushing the water comes on to fill the tank for about 5-10 seconds. The tank still looks full but water is leaking out somewhere inside the tank. What do you recommend. Thank you KC
I have this same problem! I replaced everything in my tank and its still running a slow leak into the bowl. I have everything as tight as i dare make it using tools. UGH!
Nothing can be worn as everything has been replaced. Perhaps the flapper, flush valve, or gasket defective. I tightened the tank bolts even more, still the trickle.
Try replacing the o-rings or gaskets as they may be worn.
Replaced all components inside the bowl and to attach bowl to tank.
The blue dye shows that a leak continues to make a slow stream inside the back wall of the bowl and just right of center when facing the toilet.
Frankly, I’ve tightened everything and still at a loss as to this slow leak.
