Upstairs plumbing runs on its own


I have an upstairs bathroom which we only use the toilet. Lately we hear a 10 second or so sound like it's filling but stops and then a pipe vibration/bang sound follows. Sounds like it's pressure related. The bathroom was an addition put in approximately 15 years ago. I have owned the home 2 1/2 years. There are no leaks.

Sounds like the flapper in the toilet is in need of replacement.
