Water lines making noises.
Got a customer complaining of noise in the wall when she flushes, runs w/m, runs dishwasher, and takes a shower. I havent been over to look at it yet we have only talked through text messages and that is all the info I have gotten. I have had several experiences where the fill valve is bad in the toilet or the angle stop is bad and it make terrible noises after a flush. Also have put on water hammer arrestors at the water heater and fixed it that way. My thinking is it may be a problem on both hot and cold lines because it happens when dishwasher runs (hot only) and when toilet flushes (cold only). I may get over there and it be something totally obvious, but I am new to this site and kinda wanted to post a thread and figured this might be a good time. Any ideas guys???
Pipes making crazy sound when toilet finishes filling
Has anyone ever heard their pipes make a 3-5 second long honking noise...almost like an air horn (same concept, just not as ear piercing). It is not a clanking or a hammering. It occurs for various lengths and sometimes not at all, but happens on almost every flush. Right as the water is about to shut off is when it occurs. If I manually lift up on the ball float, it stops. Is the float shutting the water off so slowly that it is causing this noise? I am about to just totally replace the guts of the toilet, but don't want to waste my time if there is another reason. Toilet does not leak into the bowl or leak onto the floor. Any thoughts?
Sounds of the sinking Titanic from my washroom
Hello, question to any expert - when I am flushing my toilet all pipes in my house making vibrating sound like it was during the last minutes on the sinking Titanic.
If I close a bit the valve supplying water to the toilet it is not happening as often, but then I have less water supply then...
What is the root of the problem here? How it can be fixed?
