Hello my name isWade and I look forward to helping you!
This a common issue with toilets. It's called phantom flushing or ghost flushing. It's either from a faulty seal at the flapper or a bad fill valve. First thing I need to know is how often does it happen?
Oh. So you aren't sure it's the toilet?
You constantly hear water running, but can't find anything running?
Are you fed by a meter at a well?
No, mains water
It sounds to me like you have a significant water leak. Do you have a crawl space, a basement or is your house on a concrete slab?
That's the worst option. Dang. I'd conta a leak detection company. The ones I like to use are the ones who fill the system with an energy gas like helium and use a gas sniffer to locate the leak. They can more accurately pinpoint it's location so you don't do more demolition than needed.
Do you have any questions about that?
Are you still with me???
Are you still needing help?
Hi, apologies but I had to leave after your "Dang" message so I couldn't respond. However, it seems to be a final word on the subject with your recommendation that I get someone in to check for a leak. What follows that?
