Why Are My Water Pipes Knocking?: The Best Explanation

Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help you if your water pipes start making noise.

You took the kids to the beach for some much-needed outdoors time. And you’re hoping they got the screaming and yelling out of their system for a least a day. But, it’s not just noisy kids that have been driving you a bit batty recently, it’s also noisy water pipes. And the banging, knocking and hammering are irritating at best and becoming louder.

It sounds as if you have a water hammer, which can be caused in several ways, according to dummies.com.

“Imagine a fast-moving stream of water traveling down a narrow pipe,” dummies.com explains. ” And suddenly and unexpectedly, the water finds a closed valve in place of what, moments earlier, was an escape point. All of a sudden, the water has nowhere to go. And, as it comes to an abrupt stop, a loud thud results, and it can be heard throughout the entire house. This deafening sound is known as a water hammer. And, the hammering action that creates the horrible racket is actually capable of damaging joints and connections in the pipe.”

Water hammers can be caused by problems with water pressure, loose mounting straps, or issues with air chambers in your pipes. Fix the correct problem and the water hammer is silenced.
