SOURCE: banging sound comes from furnance pipes

This is caused by the expansion and contraction of the pipes as they heat up and cool down. The pipes must be touching something else at the time that this is happening. It is completely normal.

What type of hammer arrestor do I buy to fix banging pipes after installing a new Moen posi-temp cartridge?


Banging pipes are a result of improper piping support. If the piping is secured, the banging will stop. If your only option is to install chambers for water hammer, any will do. Their only purpose is to hold air.

Baxi banging noise


noise in water pipes is called water hammer and is when the water flow pulsates from an inconsistent flow. Water has mass and when stopped suddenly there is a pressure build up which moves any loose pipes. It can be fixed by putting more securing or mounting saddles on the pipe to hold it steady or you can get a pressure accumulator and it takes up the pressure build up and stops the noise. It is most prevalent when sudden stop taps are used such as ceramic taps or stop cocks and less so when you have to screw down the tap to shut off the water.

Noisy water pipes when neighbours use water


Install air chamber to cushion sudden-stop of flowing water.
Water flow coming to sudden stop is called water hammer, and will bang pipes, but also loosen plumbing joints, causing leaks.

Air chamber has to be vertical, and about 18" long, with cap on top.
By code each Hot and Cold line at each tap will have air chamber located behind the wall. So there are two air chambers at each tap.

In your case, you can probably add air chamber to your Hot and Cold lines and solve problem for both dwellings.

Water hammer is caused because water does not compress like air.
So when long column of water suddenly stops... the whole pipe-full of water comes to sudden halt... and that water could weigh 1-1/2 pounds ... and just like a hammer head moving, the weight of water bangs the pipes to dissipate energy, causing noise.

How to Fix Hot Water Pipes Hammering/Banging?


Had a similar problem and found that the plumber who had replaced the recirculating pump had removed the plastic pipe hollders. These are spacers used to hol the pipes firmly as they pass through the wood studs. Even with only two spacers missing the hammering sound passed through the whole system. Once new spacers were installed the hammering sound stopped.

Banging noise when hot water is turned off


plenty of water pipes particularly in older houses where pipes may not be fastened tightly or at all to the frame of the house suffer from what plumbers refer to as waterhammer. This can be fixed by installing a small device inline from your local plumbing shop. It can also often be solved ( I have found) by fastening you water pipes at closer intivals/more securely to your house frame. Hope this helps. Mine stopped doing it once the pipes were locked in place.

Hot water: Pipes make a banging noise when turned on full force.


Hi, That banging is sometimes called a water hammer. It is made when the water hits an elbow in the piping with a force and bangs into the pipe itself. It is more likely to occur in a long run of pipe. This can be reduced or eliminated by installing an empty tube verticle in the piping near where the hammer is occuring. This tube can be found at most building supply stores. The tube is a pocket of air that acts to absorbe the extra pressure from the piping and stops it from hammering.

Our new LG dishwasher makes loud clunking noise


I believe this is a brand new dishwasher. Please listen carefully to determine of the sound you hear (clunk) is being made inside the dishwasher or is it being made near by. Most times, the problem is that the hot water pipe is baking the noise when the dishwasher closes the water inlet valve ... and the pipe goes "clunk"
I have not had an LG dishwasher make a clunking sound inside itself when the cycle changes. Also, because this dishwasher is so very quiet (well insulated) the pipe banging would be louder than something inside the Dishwasher.
If you have access to the hot water pipe, listen very near it when the cycle changes for the sound. Follow that pipe (hot water) pipe back and insulate it at the point it is banging. (or get a plumber to evaluate and resolve.)
Please get back to me with what you find, OK?
Good Luck!

Water drip into washer, used to gush in. Now water pipes bang, whine


The problem is the 10 cent rubber washer in a shut off valve in your plumbing. The brass screw that holds this washer has corroded and the washer has come loose. It now floats around inside the valve and the water flow can be blocked at one time, whistle, howel and make bangs at another. It could be any valve including the main shut off. You can listen to the pipes but the sound travels, so you are looking for the loudest spot. A new washer and screw could fix it, but sometimes the screw is broken off requiring a new valve stem. Be prepared to replace the whole valve.
