Fog horn noise while using hose water


SOURCE: Flush is weakening. Toilet paper won"t flush

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

i dont think you have toilet issue,

Try this. take a large bucket, like a paint or home depot orange bucket. fill 1/2 way...
put some toilet paper in the toilet. Then pour the water in fast, and see how it flushes. it it does a easy flush then your drain is ok. if its slow, you have a drain issue and not the toilet.

if that the case, then goto the toilet, and clean out all of the little holes, that are around the unit.. where you see the water come out. they can be clogged up. a small type wire like a clothes hanger.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Rate/Vote on my response. We take the time to answer your question. take the time to rate us.Thanks and good luck

This noise is known as "foghorn" or "water hammer" noise and can have several sources; but the most common is the 1) fill valve inside older toilet bowls, sometimes combined with a leaky flush valve---what happens in this case is that a washer at the top of the fill valve gets worn & begins to vibrate producing the noise as the pressurized water supply fills the tank after a flush----if the flush valve is also leaking, the tank will gradually empty to the point where the refill valve is tripped on periodically, and the "foghorn" sound continues periodically----and a lot of water is lost over weeks & months, costing big $$$.

Another possibility is 2) a defective pressurized water supply shutoff valve line going into the base of the toilet bowl---if the valve washer is worn in this fitting, you will hear the same effect.

Less likely is 3) an air-eliminator valve inside the wall that automatically removes air from the water supply lines & has become defective, also by a...

Some homeowners do not think about locating a plumber until they have a major water leak or a clogged drain. However, the best time to locate a plumber is long before a plumbing emergency ever occurs. Having contact information for quality home improvement professionals should be the goal of every homeowner, but many people are not sure how to locate a plumber who provides quality work for a reasonable price.

It sounds simple, but one of the best ways homeowners can find an excellent plumber is by asking their friends and neighbors for recommendations. Word of mouth recommendations are generally candid and honest, so it is a great way to find the truth about plumbers a homeowner is considering.

Consulting other types of professionals is another great way to find a quality plumber. General contractors work with a wide variety of tradesmen from plumbers to electricians. They know who has a good reputation in the home improvement community and who likes to cut...

You notice this is happening when there is only high water demand (washer and toilet - I would bet tub at full flow will do it too. Generally caused by either a lot of air in the pipes, rarely by rapidly chattering unrestrained pipes, or a flow constriction that is causing cavitation (vortices and air bubbling) in the pipe.

Can be tough to track down alone, usually quite easy with two people - one running the water (flushing toilet in your case), the other listening for where it is coming from. Cheaper to locate cause yourself first than paying a plumber an additional half to full hour to do it. Common locations - and you can determine which are likely based on whether only happening when one flow source is used, or in your case several -

1) high flow through chattering or restricted appliance flow valve - dishwasher, washing machine, toilet, or kitchen spray nozzle inlet valves; and toilet tempering valve are very common sources.

2) flow restriction in pipe...

Instructables user [rog8811] was looking to build a fog horn that resembled hand-pumped units found on small ships in the early to mid 1900s. His budget was a bit limited, so he set off to build the cheapest replica possible.

While the original horns were likely constructed from steel, copper and wood, he opted to use cheap plumbing components he found at his local hardware store. He used a simple double-acting air pump to drive the horn, combining it with a slightly modified bottle trap. The trap was shortened, and a diaphragm cut from a dish washing glove was added to generate sound.

He added a few more pieces of PVC piping to enhance the output, giving him the results you see in the video below. He says that the best thing about his design is the ability to easily tweak the pitch and volume of the horn by simply adding different drain components to the pump.

Watch out vuvuzela, there’s a new cheap and annoying horn on the block!

Until we has an irrigation system installed in September, we never had any disturbing sounds from our plumbing in the house we've lived in for 11 years. Since we put in the irrigation we get a periodic groaning sound from the pipes -- it sounds like a fog horn; loud and continuous (not pulsing) and lasting from a few seconds to 10 seconds.

At first I only heard the sound after running upstairs taps or toilets after the water had been off for a while (middle of night or first thing in the morning). But now it's getting more frequent, happening a few times each day and night, and it can happen even when there is no running water.

I have to suspect the installation of the irrigation has something to do with it as the sound first occurred after installation. To make the connection, the plumber made a t-connection to the main 3/4" copper line that run just below the joists in the basement; the connection is also less than a foot from a second connection to the main line that goes...

This has been somewhat on my mind for the past few days so I feel like it’s important enough to articulate on the dash. I’m sure there’s other posts about this but I wanted to take a moment to talk about GUILT TRIPPING and what that means.

Guilt tripping is emotional manipulation. You partake in it when you use your emotions to urge someone to do something they may not want to do. They feel strong armed into doing the action because if not, you’ll get upset. The use of your possible negative reaction then becomes a threat.

“If you don’t reply, I’ll cry/block/get mad at you.” (It doesn’t have to be said, it can just be implied. It doesn’t invite a person to WANT to reply. It makes them feel like it is an OBLIGATION which it is NOT).

“Why haven’t you replied to me yet?” (You are not ENTITLED to a reply. No one on this site is entitled to a reply. We are all here by CHOICE).

Plumbing Noises

Plumbing can make many weird noises which can have many causes and; sometimes, they're not easy to isolate and fix. I've tried to collect common causes given on

A Single Bang, Knock, Clunk or Clang

Such sounds are usually caused by a phenomenon called 'water hammer.' Water hammer doesn't accompany flowing water, so if your sound occurs while water is running, it isn't water hammer.

Water hammer happens when you turn OFF a water flow suddenly (like a dishwasher, a clothes washer, a toilet or even closing a hand faucet suddenly. Shutting off the flow suddenly sends a pressure or shock wave down the water line through the water shocking the pipes and creating the 'hammer' noise. These shock waves travel faster than the speed of sound and can exert very great instantaneous pressures. Over time, water hammer can damage pipes, valves and eventually weaken pipe joints.

Most modern homes have devices called water...

I've got a pair of these noise makers, plastic horns attached to spray cans. They are named fog horns, but people mainly use them to get deaf at sport events. These can be truly instruments of doom, as the noise is overwhelming. Obviously, I had to try to get them into sampler.

I've got some sustained tones, some short horn noise bursts and some strange sounds, achieved by blocking the horn tube opening with various objects. Got me quite an ear ringing...

Wash-Down Pump ; Once you use one of these little jewels, you will not go back to the bucket on a rope to wash down the deck. Getting the fish blood and scales off the deck while it is still wet makes life a lot easier than waiting hours or days until trying it.

There is one requirement however, and that is there has to be some way to get the water you just sprayed onto the deck to be removed. This can be accomplished in a couple of manners. One would have usually been incorporated into the original boat design. That is called a self-bailing deck that usually has drains in the rear outside corners of the deck. Many times this deck is at or near water level and if so the drains will have means to install simple drain plugs to keep the sea water from entering the boat if the fisherpersons happen to be an uneven weight distribution. If they do, the water could just flow into the bilge and your automatic float bilge pump switch takes care of the situation, but you...

This is a list of problems that have been solved by Angus MacGyver. Demonstrating resourcefulness, he employs his knowledge of science, technology and outdoorsman ship to resolve what are often life or death crises. His ingenuity is normally put to the test under dire circumstances with little time or specialized resources with which to work. (Though it does seem he frequently has a Swiss Army knife and a roll of duct tape with him.)

Pilot (1x01)Edit

MacGyver shorts out a missile timer with a bent paper clip causing the timer to stop, thus keeping the missile from detonating. MacGyver rigs a machine gun with a cord, string, stick, and matches so that when the string burns through the machine gun falls and is triggered by the stick and begins firing (while still being held by the cord). MacGyver makes a "Rocket Thruster" by hitting a flare gun with a rock, launching him and a man he rescues off of a mountain where he later releases a parachute and makes a swift...
