    Hi, I've seen the thread on the "Tuba Toilet" and similar questions asked. My question is all of our toilets on the ground floor seem to be making the humming noise in the pipes as well as all of the faucets. You can feel the floor vibrate. We just had the sewer line unclogged at the street today and I thought that may help the problem but it doesn't seem to have changed the noise at all. Any suggestions?

    Clearing the waste lines wouldn't make any difference. I don't think your waste is so moving that it would make the pipes shake rattle and roll.

    The first thing I would check,
    is the water shutoff valves, are they open?

    Do the flappers hold water in the tank.
    A little food dye in the tank and let you know.

    Does the fill valve shut off when the tank is full?
    Sometimes repair or replacement is needed.
