Normally pipes carry water in and out of your home silently. But if you suddenly hear banging, screeching, whining or rattling noises, it can be both disruptive and worrying. Sometimes the problem is easy to fix, but noisy pipes can also be the first sign of more serious issues.
To avoid damage to your plumbing and walls, we recommend calling a qualified plumber to take a look as soon as possible. Your plumber will assess the water hammers (or hydraulic shocks) and air chambers. If these chambers are filled with water, you’ll hear strange sounds when you use large appliances like washing machines or dishwashers. A qualified plumber knows exactly how to drain these air locks quickly and professionally.
Over time, pipes can become wobbly because of the constant water flow and this can cause banging sounds. If this is the case, your plumber will find the loose pipe and securely strap it into place again. Another common, and more serious, problem is high water pressure. This can damage the internal components of your appliances and pipes. Your plumber will check the water pressure regulator and make whatever adjustments are needed.
