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.
