Why Does It Sound Like Water Is Running in My Toilet

Flushing toilet.

Strange Noises from the Toilet and What they Mean

Have you ever had that moment when you're sitting on the toilet, when suddenly you hear a strange noise from the bowl? Or maybe you notice that the water in the tank is running for no reason after you’ve flushed. If so, read on to learn about some of the most common strange toilet sounds and what they mean.

Gurgling or Popping Noises

If you're hearing gurgling or popping noises coming from your toilet, it's likely due to a clog in the drainpipe. When water can't flow freely through the pipe, it will start making all sorts of strange noises. If you think you might have a clog, the best action is to call a plumber immediately. Trying to fix it yourself could make the problem worse.

Running Water in the Tank or Bowl

If there's water running in the tank or bowl when no one is using the toilet, then it's definitely time to call a plumber. This means there's a problem with the fill valve or flush valve, which are both vital components of your toilet. Left unchecked, this problem will only worsen, and your water bill will also go up!

It’s Time to Call a Plumber

Strange noises coming from your toilet can be alarming, but more often than not, they're nothing to worry about. However, if you hear water running in the tank or bowl when no one is using the toilet, that's definitely a cause for concern. In either case, the best course of action is to call a plumber right away so they can take a look and fix any problems before they become too serious.
