My Toilet is Making a High-Pitched Noise

Why is my toilet making an annoying whistling noise? Simply put, it is a problem with the fill valve. When flushing a toilet, the water in the back-tank drains to fill the bowl with fresh water. At the bottom of the container behind the bowl, there is a gasket. When that gasket gets worn, it will not shut properly. Because it will not completely shut, it will begin to vibrate. This vibration is felt through the armature and ball, which causes the loud and annoying whistling noise. With the right tools and training, this is a relatively quick and inexpensive fix.

Too frequently people become complacent with the noises emanating from a bathroom. At first, the whistle or the drip might be annoying, but after a while, people can get used to almost anything. The noises coming from your bathroom are audio indicators of whether things are going right or not. Once you notice a sound that is odd or out of place, please call a plumber Manhattan. If you hear these noises, it is either a sign that something is in the process of breaking or that it is already broken. Not dealing with your whistling sounds will most likely have you reaching out to emergency plumbing Manhattan. Use your ear to help identify problems when they are small.
