  • Water Pipes

    My pipes make a banging noise whenever I turn on or turn off my water. It happens with all faucets, both hot and cold. Is this causing damage? What can I do to stop the banging?

    Sounds like hammer time.
    Installation of water hammer arresters could solve the problem.

      Check your water pressure and also the strapping of the pipes.

      If you open and close the faucet slowly and it still makes the noise, its not water hammer.

        Are you on city water or a pump and a well?

            I was also thinking the same when I looked up his other post.

          Luckily, there's a simple fix. Here what you need to do:

          Turn off the water supply to your home.
          Drain all the water from your home's pipes -- open all the faucets, flush all the toilets and run the washing machine and dishwasher.
          Turn the water back on.

            Turn off the water at the house. Open up all of your taps. Put the key in your front door. Go through the door and lock it as you pass. Put your house on the market. Go buy tent........................!!!!!
