All of a sudden, we can hear running water in our house. No faucets, washing machine, etc. are on.
We are on well water, with electric pump into an in-house storage tank. We have a Culligan water conditioner/softener and the salt storage unit for the water conditioner. We have an electic hot water heater with upper and lower elements.
Nothing is running, yet we hear the water running. What could be causing this?!?!?

Could be your toilet tank leaking and causing it to run.

sounds good. I guess to test that senario, I should shut off the water supply to each toilet one at a time to see if it fixes it? Thx

My Culligan system is set to REGEN (Regenerate) once per week at 2 AM. When it does, it cycles through an emptying and refilling process that dumps water through your washing machine’s outlet hose. The cycle lasts about 6-10 minutes depending upon your tank size, and yes, until I got educated (bought the home with the system already installed), awoke a few nights to this rushing water sound downstair in our laundry room.

You may want to take a few drops of food coloring and drip it into the TANK (not the bowl) of the toilet. Don’t flush, and if you see the color appear in the bowl, then you need a new flapper, or something along those lines.

Save lifting the tank lid and placing food colour in that could stain the bowl under the wrong circumstances. just sprinkle sum talcum powder in the bowl, any leak will show up as a track through the powder.
