Water Noise = Leaky Toilet?
I have a question regarding one of my toilets. I noticed a noise from the pipe leading to the toilet (upstairs master bedroom), which sounds like the water is continually running. It is not like the noise when the toilet is filling up after being flushed, but a faint water running sound and periodic gurgles. I figured I had a leak so I closed the valve (the sound stops when I close the valve) to let it sit while I was at work to determine if it was leaking from the bowl or from the tank. However, neither the bowl or the tank had changed water levels over a 8-10hr period. When I re-open the valve, the sound immediately starts again. Any ideas on what could be wrong? Right now, it is just an annoyance that I hear, but doesn't seem to have any other ill affect I can determine.
also- The sounds does not stop/start as it would if a leaky toilet caused the tank float to trigger a refill after it reached a certain point. It is a continuous sound...
