water line noise?

We sometimes experiece in our plumbing lines noises like a tuba. It usually occurs when the toilet is almost finished re-filling. It last 3 -5 seconds.

Does anyone have any idea on how to resolve the problem?

Thanks

I would say it is the fill-valve on the toilet. Replace it with a Fluidmaster 400A fill-valve. They are easy to install with the great instructions that come with them. About $6 at Home Centers or hardware stores. Good luck.
