I would start by flushing every tap at your house to remove air. It sounds like there is air in your system. Maybe bypass the softner to achieve more flow to remove the air.

The unit may be in a regeneration cycle during the day. Reset to proper time of day.
It also sounds like you may need an air arestor installed on the plumbing in the house. When air becomes trapped in the plumbing lines it can cause the plumbing to "hammer" during periods of heavy usage. You would need to contact a plumber for proper placement of this device on your plumbing system.

SOURCE: Softener WG 844 needs flushing to remove dirt

If there is DIRT/SEDIMENT coming through system then you have a bigger problem. Well problems! Bypass the softener and run water into white bucket to see if it is coming from well. If so keep unit bypassed and call well man. The call Culligan to rebed softener.

What causes a loud gurgle after flush?


If the flapper does not seat correctly and completely, refill water flows into the bowl and causes a "false flush" and the loud gurgle. You can demonstrate this by holding the flush handle depressed after a normal flush. Also, there may not be sufficient slack in the flapper chain to allow it to seat correctly.

If the flush valves were installed exactly according to the instructions, they should work perfectly and can be excluded as a source of the problem.

My toto toilet flushes and refills fine, but it just started making loud noises when refilling. The noise stops when the tank is full


Your fill valve is going bad it can be replace with a new fluidmaster instead of the Ultra-G you have in it its going bad they do over time you may want to check your house water pressure in case that may have been what broke it you don';t want to break a new one.

When the toilet is flushed, it is making a loud noise as the water refills. The noise terminates once the bowl is full. Is this air in the line? The water flow seems consistent and strong.


could be a little air could be slightly higher than normal water pressure where you live. i would just turn the shuttoff valve to half off and this should quiet it down for you. hope this helps:)

After flushing flusmate toilet a very loud siren-like sound occurs.


Try changing the opening of the water valve that feeds the toilet... just open the valve a little bit, try again, if noise is still there try closing it a bit... the noise is probably from the water valve vibrating and changing the position often will eliminate it. The valve should be obvious, it's what the water supply line from the toilet connects to.

I have the k-4620-da toilet and when we flush a loud noise starts from inside the tank and doesn't stop until float is all the way up!


Make a note where your water level is then the tank is full. Replace the assembly that lets the water in with a Fluidmaster 400A fill valve, available at your local plumbing supply store.

We just installed a new one piece toilet from Neptune. It makes a loud noise when you flush it and after the water fills up. In addition, if you flush another toilet or turn on the washing machine it also...


Hello. I doubt that the installer would not install it properly. That said, the issue you are having makes me wonder if your bath drain plumbing is properly vented to the outdoors through the roof. Joe

Noisy fill valve


You may have higher than normal water pressure. Try closing the the cutoff valve on the wall half way and see if that helps. You can experiment with it till you find the best position. You can get a pressure gauge that will attach to a hose bib for a few dollars to see if the pressure is too high (more than 80 psi is too high). If it is too high you can have a plumber install a pressure breaker on the line where it enters the house.
