Toilet Bowl making sound when flushed

Hello,

When we flush a particular toilet you can hear a whining sound. Checking the supply to the toilet the pipe has a feeling when the toilet is running. Is the problem with the Fill Valve?

Thanks

Could be the fill valve... Could be a pressure issue. What type fill valve? Ball and rod?

Try reducing the pressure buy closing the valve to the toilet some.... Does it go away?

Noisy toilets making noise other than "water sounds"... you can usually go right to the fill valve and find the problem. There are several specific designs of floats and fill valves. Personally, I've had the most drama with the vertical floats that ride on the supply pipe. There was one of this type in particular I encountered that made a LOUD Bb wail the entire time the tank filled.
