when I bought my house we inherited these toilets that do not have tanks but I guess it just flushes with water straight from the pipes. The flushing is fine. The problem is that the pipes connecting to the back of one of my toilets sounds like it is running water all the time. I don't notice any leaks inside the toilet bowl or around the pipes and my ceilings are not damp or anything from this "leaking sound" from upstairs..and its been going all for over a year so any damage should've presented itself by now. It just sounds like it is leaking all the time.. is this normal for this type of toilet? Is there anything to worry about? perhaps the only problem is simply water wastage straight to the drain?

Sounds like some sort of "flushometer" toilet..most common brand is Sloan. Usually when the valve has an internal leak it shows inside the bowl just like a conventional toilet. If there is a leak elsewhere in the system it really common for the noise to transmit through the flushometer...if a single family residence check everywhere, if its a condo/apartment/ check your neighbors...
