I have a question regarding what happens when I flush the toilet in my Master Bathroom. I notice that when I just flush the toilet, with nothing in it, the pipes don't rumble......but when I put anything in it, like tissue, etc., the pipes rumble for about a second. Now I notice the same thing is happening with my other bathroom on the same level. Any thoughts? I was told by others that it may be a bad fillvalve in the toilet tank and possibly a bad stop ***** behind the toilet. Since I was planning to do so anyway, I went ahead and replaced the WHOLE toilet in my Master Bathroom. I also replaced everything inside of the tank. I even replaced the stop ***** (stop valve) with a quarter turn stop *****. I made sure I checked for leaks after installation....everything looked fine. Much to my dismay, when I flushed tissue down the toilet, after all of the issue goes into the toilet, I hear the same thunderous rumbling in the pipes (which lasts about a second). Any thoughts?

NOTE: I have a PVC drainage system.

I have the same issue. It is my upstairs bathroom that is right above my downstairs bathroom and you can really hear it when in the downstairs bathroom and it flushes. I am pretty sure my drain pipe from upstairs is PVC as well and I hear they are a lot noisier than galvanized. I can even hear the water running down as well. I have checked and it does not appear to be leaking though.

My other most recent concern is that I can always hear water running from where the supply line comes in to the house under the downstairs bathroom but cannot figure out the source. It is an old house and you always heard this same noise when the sprinklers, dishwasher, etc were running. Still trying to figure this one out. Haven't noticed any leaks either.
