Sleepless:--Before jumping from a window or anything rash ....check out the toilets as potential trouble makers. If you have only one toilet your task will be an easy one. Simply shut the water supply valve off to the toilet before retireing. If you sleep through the night with no interuptions, your well on your way to a solution to the problem. Water has the ability to travel very easily through the piping system. The problem can be quite some distance from where the noise is heard. If the noise ceases by turning the water off under the toilet tank, the solution is simple...remember to turn the water off after each use....or replace the flapper and ballcock.
Lots of luck in Durham....Bud
