Hearing Strange Running Water Sounds? Here’s What to Check

Posted on: November 5, 2015

unexpected water sounds? When should you be concerned?

First, before you have a plumbing emergency it’s important that everyone in the home know where the water shutoff valve is located and how to turn of the water supply.

One of the most common unexpected water noises is running toilets. If a toilet suddenly starts running it is usually caused by a stuck flapper valve.

Bubbling water sounds can be a sign of a water heater that has an excessive amount of sediment that is causing air bubbles and boiling inside the tank. Flushing the tank will remove the sediment.

Trickling water sounds are often made by refrigerators. If it has an ice maker, it is probably the ice tray filling with water. Another sound you may hear is when the freezer is on a timed defrost cycle and causes water to drip from places where ice or frost has built up into an evaporation tray under the unit.

Another common source of water leaks is washing machine hoses, which can wear out over time and burst.
