A gurgling toilet usually means that there is air going back up through your toilet. This will typically occur from a blockage in the sewer line, toilet trap, or in the vent stack where sewer gases escape.
Most likely, there's a part that isn't working correctly inside the tank. This issue could be due to one of the following circumstances:
- The tank lever of your toilet has chains leading off it that may get stuck around other parts, which hinders the flapper from ascending down all the way. Or the chain length that is too tight or loose.
- The flapper should rise and then slowly lower back down with water and then sit directly on top of the gasket. If the flapper is misaligned, the water won't fill back up properly.
- When the water is at a low level, the ball float within your toilet's tank may get stuck. The fill valve works to tell when the tank is full and shuts off the water supply if it gets stuck. This results in the tank not filling up enough to execute a proper flush, which is known as "Siphonic Action."
Examine the water level to see if the water isn't overflowing the tank. You'll first need to look at the overflow pipe in the middle of the tank that has small tubing connected to it.
If water is running into the overflow, you need to adjust the fill valve to stop the flow about an inch below the top of the overflow tube. You can also look to see if there's a water level mark stamped on the side of the tank.
Then, add a few drops of food coloring into the tank and test the flush valve mechanism. If there's a change of color within 15 minutes, then this is a sign that water is leaking into the toilet bowl, and the flush valve or flapper will need to be replaced.
