 Toilet spits a little squirt of water every few minutes into bowl?
Author: justneedsomehelpthanks (CA)

Hi all!


Recently, a Plumber came to install new parts into toilet (black pump?) but this new random squirts seem weird.


Every few minutes or less (though pretty random), a little squirt / spit of water will happen for about 1 second or so. Not a full flush at all. Just a little jet of water as though the toilet was spitting into the toilet (from the back left side).
Any ideas? I presume the plumber might need to make another visit.
Thanks

Sounds like the tank flapper may be slightly leaking thru and the fill valve ( in the back left corner of the tank) is just doing it's job of keeping the tank full. If the work was done recently they should be called back in.

You told us so much, but still nothing to help you. What brand and model of toilet do you have ?

Thanks for helping us to help you.

Best Wishes
