    Hi Puddin, It sounds like you need to adjust your fill valve. Turn the screw on top of the fill valve so that you can adjust the float in the tank so that the toilet stops filling approx one inch below the top of the overflow tube.

    If it's faulty innerds, like a loose flapper valve, take off tank lid, flush, and you should be able to figure out problem. If it's quantity of water, put one of those ice packs, or a brick wrapped in aluminum foil, in the tank to save water and keep it from running so long.

    Also, check the turnoff valve on the wall under and behind the toilet to make sure it's on all the way.

    Put a mason brick inside the tank. Less volume=less water=less time to fill. Saves on water bill too.
