Right - finally managed to add a pic of the cistern... The noise is definately not from the ball rubbing against the side of the cistern.....(although it does slightly touch it) Any further ideas or suggestions please???

Hi folks...

had a similar prob last year when a button flush built in would make a few strange noises when actvated, again a button with "air" in tube, would make the valve ( no syphon in this cistern!)  lift, and it was whilst the valve was lifting to let the water out of the cisten the noise would emminate...

my plumber mate came back, removed the valve, and outlet, and resealed with a tad less sealant, he reckoned he'd had this before and the small mounds of sealant where causing an effect near where the water left the cistern, disrubting the water flow enough to make the noise! ,helping to drag cistern air into the top of the valve he also rotated the valve around a small bit.. re fitted all items, and have not had a call back since....

just letting you know!!!

Sounds like one of those jobs where you really need to be there. Sorry I'm not very good at remote viewing!

Well.... it doesnt seem to be the ball on the float valve

There is another white plastic part that isnt part of the float valve so I guess that is the most obvious place for the noise to be comming from.

Any clues on what that is or why its making a noise?

Thank you

Sometimes plastic on plastic moving parts can make strange noises. Can you work out where in the cistern or push button it's coming from ?

Strange noise from toilet flush
Jan 21st, 2008, 9:28pm
 
Hi
Hope someone is able to help me please.

I have a toilet thats cistern is built into a cabinet. Th flush button is on the outside of the cabinet. This is connected into the cistern by a small clear plastic tube.

When the toilet is flushed everything works fine. However, just after pressing the button and the water flushing a stange noise comes out of the cistern. It is fairy loud and rather strange. (If you were outside the toilet door you might think it sounded rather similar to the after - effect of baked beans!!)

It all looks ok in the cistern, nothing obviously sticking. Ive given it a bit of a clean up without taking anything apart but no joy. Its only a couple of years old so I doubt it should be worn out as yet....

Any clues on what it is and how to fix it would be much appreciated.
