A noisy toilet is telling you something and you should not ignore it. It means something’s up (or down) and as a homeowner, you need to take action as soon as possible to avoid further inconvenience and additional expense.
A toilet that is producing a loud noise after flushing is not normal and can be caused by different things. Here are some of the reasons why your toilet is making a loud noise:
1. Defective toilet fill valve
A toilet with a fill valve that is not working properly is more than just a nuisance, it can waste water and can cause your water and sewer bills to become strangely high. If you suspect a faulty fill valve is the reason why your toilet is noisy, your best option is to replace it with a new fill valve. Start by removing the tank lid. Turn off the water supply valve and hold the flush lever down to drain water from the tank. Remove the old toilet fill valve and attach the new fill valve. Turn on water supply valve and test the new fill valve.
2. Loose or worn ballcock washer
A toilet that’s creating a foghorn sound may mean that the washer is loose or worn out. This is a simple problem that requires a simple solution – replace the washer. Just remember to switch of the water supply valve before doing working inside the toilet tank.
3. Broken Float switch
A faulty or maladjusted float switch will cause the toilet to produce a sound of running water. To adjust a float switch, you can try slightly unscrewing the float or using the adjustment screw located above the valve. If the problem is a damaged float switch, unfortunately, your only option is to replace it with a new one.
