 Random water noise from the toilet
Author: mharding (CA)

My husband recently replaced the old float and valve in a toilet with a newer valve that doesn't have the old float. Now we occasionally hear a sound like water running through the toilet. No leaking or drop/rise in water level, just the noise. Why is this and should we be concerned?

put some food coloring into the tank and after a while look in the bowl to see if it shows up.if it does the flapper is not the correct one for that toilet.
also check the small refill tube. it should attach to a clip to hold it above the overflow tube.
