In response to Re: Toilet runs when bathroom faucet is turned on
: Hi,
: I noticed that when I turn my bathroom faucet on that the toilet now makes a brief noise like it is trying to fill the tank back up. This stops as soon as the faucet is shut off. I replaced the old toilet with a new one a few months back but this just started happening over the last few weeks. Any ideas? As always, any replies are much appreciated!!
: Thanks,
: Ron


Sounds like an inadequately sized water line except that it has only started the past few weeks. Turning on the lavatory could be causing a pressure reduction in your branch supply line relieving the pressure against your ballcock. Take off the tank lid and observe.LonnythePlumber
