Hi,
There is a loose washer in the faucet...this flaps as the water goes through it and makes the vibration...

Hot water pipe clinging when closing valve


This could be a lot of possible fixes. Try putting a piece of tube insulation around the pipe at where it is hitting on a another pipe or something. This would at least stop the noise. That is the nature of the beast with the noise. Hot water responds that way depending on what is going on in the air .

The issue is the flow sensor, if the faucets are restricted (like showers heads) then there is not enough flow to trip the sensor. This could also be related to pipe size and water pressure.

You have water hammer effect it is caused by a fast closing valve,it can be solved by installing a water hammer arestor in the plumbing line or maybe the water pressure is too high and a pressure reducing valve can be installed in the main water line.(the pipes in the wall are not secured properly that's why they vibrate)

I have two vanities and a shower in the bathroom. We only get hot water to the sinks when we turn on the shower to hot. Even if we turn off the shower we will still get hot water for a while. It just seems...


Check the water supply lines to the shower at the faucet handles. If the fitting for the hot water line connected to the handle is loose, it can twist and kink off the water supply further down the line when you turn the faucet handle. I'm not exactly sure how this could be relevant otherwise, but under normal design circumstances this type of scenario with your shower wouldn't matter for other faucets.

Clogged bathroom sink


Try removing the **** Trap under the sink, there are two nuts one on each side. put a pan under the sink to catch the waste water in the trap first. ext loosen the nuts with a pair of channel locks or a pipe wrench turn the nuts counter clock wise direction till the nuts are loose slide the trap down and empty the contents of the trap into the bucket. Use rubber gloves so you don't get sick from germs. If the **** trap is plugged use a coat hanger to push threw the trap to get whatever is plugging it out. Rinse in a different sink, If it has the rubber gaskets I would recommend replacing the gaskets. Install in reverse. Do not over tighten the nuts or you will have to replace the parts. the trap looks like 2 opposing J .

Very low pressure when turn on the hot water faucet in sink


Shut off the water supply and open your faucets, and apply air pressure (min. 30psi) to dislodge any blockage in the pipes.

Leak from bathroom sink behind the wall


hello , usually there will be water supply lines coming in from behind the wall area and if it isnt leaking at the supply valve it self then you may need to open up the wall area behind the sink and find out what is leaking it depends on what type of pipe is used most likely you have cooper tubing and sometimes these tubes after a while may leak or form small holes or it may be a leak at a soldered joint remeber there are 2 lines one for hot one for cold and you can turn the off by shuting off your water at the main valve then repair the leaking area.

Clunking noise in sink


You are describing a problem known as water hammer. This will ultimately cause damage somewhere in your plumbing system so it should be addressed. If you are handy you can install an air chamber near the sink. If you want more information let me know. good luck.
