What's That Hammering in My Plumbing? | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

If your plumbing is making odd noises and vibrations, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.

You’re looking forward to the tree lighting and other holiday celebrations. The last thing on your mind is your plumbing. So when you heard a loud noise coming from your faucet this morning, you were especially distressed.

It sounds as if you may have a water hammer.

Water hammer is a common plumbing condition. It’s an annoying sound, a loud ‘bang’ that can be quite startling,” thespruce.com says. “Water hammer, or hydraulic shock, is both a sound and a sensation. You’ll be shutting off a faucet when a quite audible bang vibrates up the pipes. Because sound is vibration, it’s often strong enough so that you can feel it under your hand as you hold the faucet or the handle. You may even see the faucet slightly jump.

“The shock of water hammer can even cause dishes and glasses in cabinets to vibrate. You may also hear the sound resonate within the house’s inner structure.”

Thespruce.com cautions that, while you might want to ignore it and hope the water hammer will go away, you should get it fixed before it damages your plumbing system. Among the possible fixes – install water hammer arrestors or an air chamber. Installing a water pressure regulator can also help.

If you don’t already have a trusted plumber who can do the repair, then it’s time to get to know Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
