    toilet runs water when flushed.........all the time!

    With no city water hooked up or fresh water pump turned on, the toilet runs water every time it is flushed. What gives?? Momentum G21

    Are you sure the water pump is off? Usually there are 2 switches, one inside on the control panel, and one outside by the water hookup area.

    CORRECTION

    Huntindog is right. There is water in the system, either gravity or pressure is pushing it to a low spot, ie. the toilet.

    Ok, went and checked everything again. No city water, battery switch is off, pump is off, I only find one pump switch. When I hold the flush lever down, water is running. Can not hear any pump running. Kitchen sink has no running water. Jeff, if it's a valve, where is the pressure coming from? Baffled !!

    The sink is higher than the toilet, so it will run out of water first. There can be a lot of water in the lines to feed it after the pump is off. It will run by gravity until the lines as mostly empty.

    I'm guessing it's exactly what @huntindog said

    Whether there is water with gravity feed or not it still should shut off once you take your foot off the flush valve.

    It does stop when you remove your foot.
