    We've done a lot of installs where a brand new 1" meter will transmit a ticking sound thru the entire copper water pipe system ( the village says it's normal for them to do that ? ) .

      Could be the cold line going to that toilet needs to be insulated from a stud/joist. My neighbor across the street had that same problem. It only made the sound when the toilet flushed. The pipes were strapped tight to the side of the joists. I pulled the copper two-hole straps and changed them to Sioux Clips.
      Problem solved.
