Why Does My Toilet Make A Hissing Sound?

A hissing toilet can mean a few things but it is smart to assess it quickly as this issue can actually cost you on your water bill.

Flapper – The flapper, also known as “the stopper” may be worn out, allowing water to continue running through to the bowl.

Flapper leak – Fill valve refill tube is incorrectly in the overflow pipe.

Flush valve – If the flapper is replaced and the refill tube is removed from the overflow pipe, and the hissing sound is still imminent. The flush valve needs to be replaced.

Sand – Sand is clogging fill valve passages and not allowing the diaphragm to close fully.

Screws – Screws holding valve assembly are corroded to the point where the valve body no longer seals completely.
