    Suddenly I'm getting a foghorn sound when I flush toilet.

    About a week ago for no reason, I started hearing what sounds like a foghorn sound whenever I flush the main bathroom toilet. But if I use the other bathroom toilet, no sound. Can you explain the problem and tell me what to do? it's odd.never had this before in any house. Thanks

    First check to see if the toilets water supply/shut-off is all the way open?

    Then flush the toilet with the tank lid off and listen where the sound is comming from, most likley its the ballcock the fill valve for the toilet.

    You can shut off the valve to the toilet tank and take apart and clean the balcock or just replace it.

    The Water supply is all the way on

    Yes the water supply is all the way on. I'll check the ball cock and replace it then. I appreciate so much your replying and all your help. Thanks SO much! Have a great day! T
