Toilet - Constant Trickle

There's a consant trickle of water running into the toilet bowl. We've replaced the flppe . .that didn't solve the trickle. We then replaced the flush valve and still there's this constant tiny trickle of water running into the bowl.. What's next?

msmaxx, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
I am noticing an increasing amount of problems that members are having after replacing flappers. Some toilets require the same type to work properly. Even though they may "look" the same, they are different.
Could also be calcium build-up on the piece the flapper seals on. Raise the flapper and run your finger around the seating area to see if it feels rough. Check the adjustment of the chain on the flapper also. It should allow the flapper to "just" seal. This will give you a full flush. Good luck.
If you have the little tube that goes into the overflow tube, check to see if it continues to flow after a complete flush.

Yes, we did check the flapper for roughness etc. and that was fine. What we ended up doing was repalcing all and it seems to have solved the trickle problem. I can't hear the trickle any longer and I think that was the most annoying. Thanks for your reply.
