What's That Noise? | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

That noise could indicate you have a plumbing problem. Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help with that.

For the past few weeks, Socks, the family cat, has been doing one of those things that cats are known for – staring at walls. Of course, when you – the human looks – there’s nothing there. It’s been driving you a little batty and, with Halloween approaching, you’ve jokingly wondered if Socks is sensing a ghost or gremlins.

Then, early this morning, when the house was quiet because everyone else was sleeping, you heard it. A humming sound. You think you managed to track it down to your water pipes.

It’s very possible the humming sound is coming from your water pipes. Funny sounds are one indication that you might have a plumbing problem. And, the type of sound can indicate the type of issue you’re facing. For example, a humming sound can indicate that your water pressure is too high, according to homeserve.com. Squeaking or whistling can signal a bad water shutoff valve. Gurgling could indicate a clog.

Banging, or rattling, can indicate you have a water hammer.

Homeserve.com explains, “A water hammer occurs when a faucet or valve quickly shuts off the flow of water into the fixture or appliance. This sudden stop means the moving water already in the pipe comes to an abrupt stop when it meets the closed valve. The startling noise you hear reverberating around your pipes is usually amplified when the pipe fittings become loose due to the sudden change in water flow.”

For help in tracking down and repairing your plumbing problems, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
