Sound under house about every 15 mins
I am having a wierd problem where for the last couple months about every 15 mins I hear a sound that lasts about 8 seconds coming from under the house, like the sound of water in the pipe after a toilet is flushed. The problem is the sound follows the water line under the house but the toilets are not running. I have a pool and a timer for the backyard sprinklers, and I don't know if they have anything to do with the sound.

Thank you for any help you can give this poor lady.:)

check your water meter-----write down the number before you go to bed---and again when you get up.

If you are using water--start shutting down the different systems that could be using water all by themselves,---I would suspect a toilet----

Sump pump?

just a guess, but it could be a toilet with a slow leaking flapper.
