Toilet Flush Causes Refrigerator Knocking

So I noticed my refrigerator seemed to make a knocking or hammering noise when a toilet on the other side of the house was flushed. I have a Whirpool side by side refrigerator and Toto toilet. The refrigerator also occasionally makes the noise without flushing the toilet. After scouring the web it sounded like a bad refill valve in the toilet causing a water hammer. I replaced the valve in the toilet and that appears to have fixed it. The toilet itself had a very small knocking going on with the water line once the toilet was almost full but was barely noticeable. However, the noise on the refrigerator side was quite loud. I just wanted to post this in case anyone else ever experiences the same issue.

New Arduino Forum Area – PRESENT

I recently started messing around with the Arduino Nano to use as a remote data and control device connected back to a Raspberry Pi. I started up a new Arduino section in the forum to document how I am setting things up. It can be found here. I’ll be adding appropriate threads for the Raspberry Pi also but once I get further, I’ll create a blog post on the project.

If you were looking for a present you’ve come to the right place. Perhaps you’ll find what you’re looking for within the Excel file.
