We’ve all done it: you have a extra toilet in the basement or in some other little-used area of the house. One day, it gets used and the toilet mechanism gets stuck. A few days later, you see the toilet was still running and you anticipate a higher-than-usual upcoming water bill. Maybe a few dollars — but, $1,274.07??

Such is the case for a woman in Redford, MI who discovered a toilet in her spare bathroom was on constant refill for a week, resulting in a water bill 40 times higher than normal.

Check those toilets!
