Why Is My Toilet So Loud?
Attention Drain Wizard customers! Are you hearing strange and loud noises coming from your toilet? Don't ignore it! That loud sound could indicate a bigger problem with your plumbing.
Here are some noises your toilet may make and the potential reasons behind them:
- Whistling or Squealing: The ballcock valve, also known as a float valve, is the most probable cause of the problem. Fortunately, this is a very easy and inexpensive issue to resolve. While adjusting the current ballcock mechanism may sometimes solve the problem, many individuals opt to replace the entire mechanism since the parts are so affordable and they are already dismantling it.
- Whistling or Hissing When Flushed: If you hear a whistling or hissing sound from your toilet, it may indicate that the fill valve is not sealing and air or water is escaping. It can also mean water is draining into the overflow tube.
- Gurgling: Of all the odd sounds a toilet can make, gurgling can be one of the most challenging to pinpoint. A gurgling toilet might be caused by a clogged sewer drain, a blockage in a vent stack, or even a blockage within the toilet.
- Ghost Flushing: Don't worry; your toilet isn't possessed. Instead, water is seeping out from the tank. Once it hits a low enough level, your toilet turns on to refill itself.
