Frequently Asked Questions
What is Water Hammer?
What causes Water Hammer?
When the water is turned off, the water pressure is no longer flowing forward it rebounds backwards and is released through the pipe which usually are fixed or braced against an immovable object to stop the pipes from vibrating.
If your pipes are rattling it means they are not secured properly they may have come loose from the fixture or wall this is when you hear “Water Hammer” the pipes are moving as the pressure is released and they are knocking against something.
The main problem with water hammer is that it places immense pressure on pipe joins which can weaken and burst resulting in a much greater headache than the noise.
Older homes do not usually have the same quality or quantity of fixings to keep the pipes steady. Newer homes also have a “water hammer arrester” to assist in stopping noisy pipes.
