Check your pressure gauge when this happens. I am cetain that the pressure is dropping and causing the pump to operate. Normally, this only happens when you use water so it is not noticable. The toilets could be leaking and causing the pump to run, but it is more likely a bad check valve and the water is flowing back down the pipe into the well.

: : I have a problem with a hum in my water pipes. This is different than other posts that I have read, as mine does it when no water is running. It will last about 5 to 10 secs and then stop. A while later it will do it again. Its quite loud and can make the fog horn sound at times. I have a well system if that makes a difference. Any remedies would be appreciated.

: Roy, check the flapper in the stools and change the ball cock. but first if you can, shut them off and see if you still have this noise.do you have a boiler? let me know. Dale
