Dripping noise from toilet drain


when u pee, u can hear a dripping noise, but there is no leak.

never experienced this before with any toilet.

I BET THE TOILET PIPE CONNECTION IS PLASTIC, DOING A 90 DEG TURN. WHEREAS BEFORE, IT WAS CAST IRON.

Dripping noise from toilet drain


Not related at all to accessorries like drain valve or flapper.

It has to do with the volume in the bowl. It only drips when you are using the toilet (#1 or #2). After you flush and volume retuns to normal it stops making a noise.

If anyone has any other ideas on how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.

Dripping noise from toilet drain


Rodkan's links posted above to a similar thread discuss the problem in good detail. I believe either lowering the fill line in the tank or if this was a recently installed toilet tell the plumber to fix it by leveling it perfectly I think. If it's not perfectly level that dripping can happen. (This info from one of the links above.)

Insert some food dye into the tank. If any reaches the bowel then you have a flapper problem. This is without flushing and give it an hour.
