Faucet Sputtering | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help you when your pipes suffer from air lock.

You were going to take a walk along Pier 60 today to watch the sun rise. But when you went to brush your teeth, the water in your bathroom sinks began spurting and sputtering. You’re not sure why.

Sounds as if you might have a case of air lock.

Hunker.com explains: “Air lock happens when pockets of air keep the water in your pipes from moving through like normal. Air lock in your house’s plumbing will leave a water line nearly or completely useless until you fix the situation, causing low water pressure or completely stopping water from reaching your faucets.”

You know you have air lock when the water sputters as it’s coming out of the faucet. At times, you won’t get any water at all. This usually happens in hot water lines because, according to hunker.com, “the water pressure from the hot water tank won’t force the air blockage out of the way. Cold water pipes often connect to the water main, making the development of an air lock in cold water pipes less likely.”

If you have a so-called mixed faucet that has both hot and cold water coming out of the faucet, then you’ll likely notice a problem when you turn on the hot water while the cold water runs normally.

Your easiest fix is to call the 24-hour plumbing technicians at Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
