I hear it mostly in one of the bedrooms. It seems to be low (a foot or 2 from the floor). I heard it once in the kitchen also.

I am kinda worried that something is wrong and I don't know what to look for.

I do have a new roof but if it is the shingles why do I hear the sound so low?


I can't imagine what it is. I hate to ignore it, in case it's important.

DO YOU have hot water heating in the home ???

IfSO, it could be air bubbles in the pipes 'rounding the corners of the vertical pipes, into the horizontal pipes . I have that, FOR that reason.

Ok, that's a good idea. All my pipes are high, above the ceiling and none in the area that I am hearing the sound.

Here are my ideas, something to do with the new roof (and I am not hearing in the right direction).

The house is sinking from all the rain.

The new heated cat pad is weird.

Leaves stuck on the windows coming off of them.

I have no idea.

It is somewhere between a suction cup sound and a blop sound.

Does it happen when you run water down the drains?

I ask because in my mansion, yes, mansion...lol when I run water in the kitchen and my bathroom, I get serious tapping sounds from the drain lines about four to six feet from the sinks.

Strange it is...... Even my plumber is like wtf

Sounds like a dripping noise. Is it easy to hear outside noises through your windows? Most noises are caused from expansion and contraction of water pipes or forced air heating ducts beginning or during and right after operation. Such as domestic hot water line being used or a gas furnace firing up. I have also heard that sound from an empty pop can.

no clue.

one-story or two-story house? if 2 stories, it could be something in between the floors.

how often do you hear it?

when you hear it, does it repeat itself?



I had a strange sound in the house, almost like a sobbing, moaning sound from the bathroom. I heard it clearly. one story house. around 4 am. A ghost in the toilet??

When I went to get the newspaper hours later, I saw we had a colossal water main break! Water all over the road, fast-moving.

another night weeks later - same sound, and this time I looked outside. Water main break.

Got so I called the water company emergency number any time I heard the moaning toilet sound. They thought I was insane until they checked - water main break right in my neighborhood.

and then they cited me for messing with my water meter!

AS IT TURNS OUT, every time there was a water main break in the neighborhood, my pipes had the water sucked out, causing the "moaning" sound.
It also caused my water meter to spin backwards, making me have a ridiculously low water usage.

Well all was solved. They realized I had not tampered with the water meter.

 Quoting: WindyMind


I had a similar "suction cup" sound in my house and it baffled me for a couple months because it was so infrequent.

As it turned out it was the refrigerator, where some metal panel buried in it's walls was flexing whenever the refrigerator went through a temperature cycle.

In your case, it could also be some metal object either in your heating system or directly near the heating system that is going through a heat distortion and making that sound as the temperature fluctuates.
