We have 3 toilets in the house and whenever we flush the one in the main bathroom the banging noise starts. We can stop the noise by running water in the sink for a few seconds. The noise started when the weather got warmer about 2 weeks ago and it seems to take twice longer to flush the toilet.

Do we need an arrester or need to replace something in the toilet tank? Any advice?

You either have a problem with the shutoff valve under the affected toilet or have a problem with the fill valve inside the affected toilet.

Sometimes debris or dirt or a broken washer will partially block the valve leading to vibration and slow filling.

The simplest repair is to replace the fill valve in the toilet.

If the problem persists, concentrate on cleaning or replacing the shutoff valve below the toilet.
