    Sound of Running Water

    Hello,


    We recently had the water pressure in our neighborhood upgraded. Since then I've been noticing the sound of an open faucet (water running through pipes) in the bathroom, even though no faucet or water appliance is on in or outside of the house.

    I do not believe it's the toilet because it doesn't necessarily sound like water running through my toilet or in or out of the tank and because I've checked my toilet tank and things seem fine there.

    I've shut off the water to the toilet and it still continues. I've shut off water to the sinks and the bath tub and it still continues.

    Regardless, I constantly hear the sound of water in pipes....and it's driving me batty...

    Any information or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers
    Shawn

    Re: Assistance Please-Sound of running water

    This does not sound good as it sounds like there is probably a leak in your water service. If you shut off the main water supply and the sound persists, then you have a leak either underground or leading to your fixtures in your home.

    I would definitely have this tested quickly as the expense of running water can get very steep.




    Do yo live on a slab or regular basement setting?
