Homeowners are responsible for making sure that no problems occur with
their house. Unfortunately, when it comes to plumbing, they often ignore
annual maintenance and wait until a problem occurs before they call for
repairs, or even replacement. One of the most common issues is banging
in your pipes, also known as “water hammer.”
What is Causing That Noise?
Before any repairs or repiping, it is imperative to determine why your
plumbing is making all of the racket in the first place. When you shut
off a faucet, the pressure in the pipe changes and can cause a banging
type of sound.
Also, when the air in the pipes that keeps the water flowing through the
system starts to leak out, the pressure can change rapidly at various
points in your plumbing. The water then moves faster and causes a loud
noise when it encounters a junction or a valve.
