Noisy toilet shut-off
Posted by Lori on July 12, 1998 at 11:20:47:
Pardon my lack of technical language -- here's my
best explanation:

I recently replaced the balls and flappers in 3 toilets.
The plumber did not install new balls, but replaced
them with a type of floating mechanism.

Since then, every time the tanks refill and
the water shuts off in the two toilets on the second
floor, there is a noise like an explosion.
The toilet on the first floor is quieter.

I don't know if this is a common problem, or if the
parts are defective or can be adjusted. Any advice
you can give will be appreciated.
