What's That Banging? | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Billy the Sunshine Plumber will solve your water hammer problem.

You were all snuggled in bed the other night dreaming of the Rays’ wins when you heard a crashing noise coming from your watepipes.

“When something goes bump in the night, it could be water moving through your valves and pipes. But when you hear loud banging coming from your plumbing or valves, it’s a problem called a water hammer. If your house is more than a decade old, you can probably attest to hearing this sudden and often disturbing cacophony,” according to realtor.com.

Realtor.com explains, “Hammering can be caused by waterlogged air chambers, clogged chambers, or excess pressure in your plumbing system. It can also be the result of a valve or pipe clog, which can produce a staccato banging sound.”

Realtor.com adds, “Yes, the hammering is vexing. But worse, prolonged water hammer noise like this can sometimes cause pipe fittings and valves to fail and pipes to burst. Properly installed plumbing contains air pockets or chambers that compress when a shock wave hits them, muffling that water sound. But water under pressure absorbs air and eventually erodes the air cushions. That’s when the water hammer trouble begin.”

If you get a water hammer and need help, call the trusted plumbers at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
