Water Supply to Toilet Making a Noise
The water supply feeding the toilet makes a noise because of the fill valve. It doesn’t mean that theres anything wrong with the fill valve necessarily. The fill valve closes very quickly once the toilet has met its demand for filling the tank. When the fill valve closes it closes very quickly and the water pressure (40-60psi) has to stop instantly creating a water noise or a vibration. This causes a water hammer to occur and can be harmful to your waterlines over time. What you need to do is install a water hammer arrest on your toilet supply, its very easy to install and all you need is a 5/8″wrench and a 1/2″ wrench. You can get one off ebay cheap.
