Noisy water pipes can be incredibly annoying – they won’t even let you sleep. Do you know the reason why these pipes rattle? Is there a possible solution to get rid of these noisy water pipes? There are actually some reasons why this plumbing issue happens.

1.    Water Hammers

This happens when water travels through the pipe that ends near a faucet. The fast movement causes the noise and to stop this from happening, you can ask your plumber to install air chambers in areas where these noises are made. In fact, your plumber will definitely recommend this, when you tell him about the problem. These air chambers need to be refilled from time to time to maintain the cushion system or else you’d hear the water hammer sounds all over again. You can refill the air chambers easily, or you can ask your plumber to do it for you. All you have to do is actually turning off the water supply, then turning on the highest faucet in the entire house to drain it. After that, you can drain the lowest faucet too. Once water is all drained out, air will be in its stead in your pipes. You can refill the air chamber by turning off the lowest faucet, then turning on the water supply to fill it again with water. Then turn off the highest faucet.

 

2.    Increased water pressure

Loud banging noises heard in the pipes can be attributed to high water pressure. Water pressure must be regulated properly in the home, it can’t be too low and not too high either. You can control the water pressure using the water regulator that can be found near the point of water supply line when it enters your home. If you don’t have the pressure regulator yet, you need to ask your plumber to install it for you. With reduced water pressure, you can save on water bills, protect your water tank as well as your appliances and water fixtures too.

 

3.    Loose plumbing

If your problem is not solved by the tips found in the two sections above, the cause of your noisy pipes could be plumbing essentials not mounted tightly. Your pipes need to be checked regularly by a professional plumber to ensure that everything is tightly installed. Failure to do so can cause these annoying noises and even pipe leaks. Loose pipes can cause vibrations and these can even bang against other things around them. You’d never have a peaceful, restful sleep at night with loose plumbing issues.

 

When your plumbing and pipes rattle, don’t just sleep on it – it could be a sign that something is seriously wrong. Don’t ignore such problematic signs. Instead, call your professional plumber and have him take a look. This could save the problem once and for all so that you can have a good night’s rest and at the same time, you can avoid damages to your appliances that are constantly supplied with water.
