Check to make sure your toilet is bolted down to the floor. Could be a loosened wax ring seal

Brand newish toilettes so I don't suspect them.

Take a plunger and start pumping your toilet. If water starts seeping out along the base of the toilet and you hear bubbles, you need to take your toilet apart. Fun

I have new toilets, I don't suspect them but I will listen in their direction sometime to rule that out.

we have very hard water & when my water heater needs to be flushed it makes suctiony/groaning/clunking noises.
also
could be that the pressure release on the water heater is sticking and you hear pops when the pressure pops through

It is on the other side of the house in the garage so.....not that.

It's heat/ cold related ..... Contraction and expansion.

Could be ductwork cooling off after the furnace has cycled its burner, ormif you have radiators then you got air trapped.

Either way, don't worry.

lived in this house once for like 12 years. right beneath our bedroom window at exactly every 58 minutes, this beep would go off, like the old casio watches. we did everything to try and find that friggin beep including opening up the wall. never found it. it almost drove us buggy. 12 years, a mysterious beep every 58 minutes, no clue where it came from.

i don't have a clue about your suction cup noise but all i can say is i hope you find the answer :)

otherwise, this might help...


 Quoting: Salt


Great video, I laughed.

I could live with the sound except I would feel real dumb if it was an important
warning that I blew off. Ya know?

Is this a constant noise ore a once in a while thing?

Acoustics can be funny things. The noise could be originating from the attic but sound like it's coming from the walls or even the floor.

Interesting...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 66609665


This sounds good. It is a random noise that is happening a little more often as time goes. I could go sit in the attic sometime to see if it is from up there.

Thanks

Dryer, fartfan or rangehood vent that has a small spring loaded shutter (where it exhausts). Some of these don't have a balance hole drilled into the center of them. If the wind is somewhat blowing this can spring open and closed because of the differential in air pressures between the inside and out of the house. They can give the exact sound that you are referring to because, it sounds like a bit of suction when they open and close because of the spring balance/pressure.

Is the AC Air Handler in a closet on the second floor? If so, you must install a p trap on the drain line, otherwise when the Air Handler turns on, the air is being sucked in through the drain line not allowing the water to flow properly. So one would hear a suction sound in the drain line that most likely has a bit of water in it. That is my thought!(I know from personal experience) Good Luck!!

Cheap house. Cooler climate? Might just be a nail loosening up on a floorboard or interior wall. No worries there. Or maybe cern created a black hole that is manifesting in one of your bedrooms.

Good ideas but these things are not near where I am hearing the suction.

I have never heard it in the living room and only once in the kitchen.
