Why does my toilet make noise occasionally?
There are several things that could be causing your toilet to make either a gurgling noise or a loud noise, but the three most common reasons include calcium deposits that have accumulated over time on the inner portion of the pipes, faulty fill valves, or leaky toilet valves.
Why does my toilet keep making noise every few minutes?
If your toilet is making a high pitched sound or is making the wall around it vibrate every few minutes, it could be an issue with your toilet valve leaking. It could also mean your fill valve is not functioning properly as well.

What causes toilet to surge?

A toilet making an air noise or a whistling or hissing sound is a sign that the fill valve is not closing and sealing properly, and air or water is leaking from the fill valve.

Why does my toilet make a loud sound when I refill it?
When you hear a loud sound just as your tank is refilling, it may mean that there’s an uneven water flow inside the supply pipe.
