I live in a manufactured home & am city sewer line. But when we run water or flush a toilet we can hear the water. Sounds like it is running into an empty tank under the house. I even hear water sometimes when we don't even have any on. It's like i am hearing the neighbors water when it runs.

Thanks for any help.

Try adjusting the valve under your toilet as a globe valve is designed to throttle and excessive velocity can cause lots of strange sounds and piping erosion

Can you please explain exactly what you mean by this -- don't have the valve fully open???

I have a knocking noise also and it seems like the toilet may be related. Can't yet tell where the sound actually is happening -- upstairs in the walls somewhere.

means that closing the water supply slightly so less volume is flowing through the piping and excessive velocity can cause all kinds of wacky sounds
