Question Running Toilet

I have a toilet that runs about every 3-5 minutes. What should I check?

Replace the flapper in the bottom of the tank. They get weak and wear out, although it isn't visible.
Clean the flapper seat with steel wool or SOS pad. Adjust the chain on the new flapper so that it is shortened and just long enough to allow the flapper to fully seal.
Good luck!
