Consider this expression

After I came to know/found out the fact that two of my friends will not be able to make it to the party, I decided to call it off.

Every time I come to know/find out/notice/see that water level in the can is below X level, I call the store and they get it replaced

For these two expressions which of the phrases are correct? Is there any difference between the meanings of notice/see/find out/come to know.

I'd suggest "learned" for the first sentence instead of all those other choices:

After I learned that two of my friends would not be able to {make it to / come to / attend [CHOOSE ONE]} the party, I decided to call it off.

And for the second sentence, I'd suggest this:

Every time I {notice / see [CHOOSE ONE] that the water level in the can is below X level, I call the store and they {replace it / fill it up [CHOOSE ONE]}.

I {come to know/find out} are verbose.
