Common Causes of Noisy Water Pipes

  • Water Hammering - Most taps and faucets these days have an air chamber or aerator mechanism behind the faucet to help disperse any excess water pressure once the faucet is off. Over time this air in the water hammer arrestors escape and the loud banging noise inevitably increases.
  • Loose Piping - Piping that has come unfixed can be a real pain. The pipes begin to sway and rattle as they become loose from years of water pressure, this can often lead to banging on walls and floors causing even more racket and plumbing problems.
  • Old & Worn Out Washers - A worn washer or valve seat is often easier to diagnose as it has a distinct squeak noise that can be heard from the tap or washing machine hose connections.
  • Noisy Toilet - If the issue occurs after flushing your toilet this can often be the result of a worn-out ballcock assembly in your loo.
  • Rumbling Pipes - People often associate deep rumbling pipe noise to older homes, however, the real issue is generally due to sediment build up in your water heater.
  • Excess Water Supply Pressure - After a while house pumps can wear or malfunction. This can result in excess water pressure feeding from large water pipes to the smaller pipes. This can cause many of the above problems including water hammering and loose pipes to happen much sooner than usual. This can also be the cause of an emergency burst pipe which is a whole other can of worms.

How To Stop The Banging And Clunking Pipes

Before you call the professionals, there are a few things that can temporarily help. Reducing the water flow from your pump is one of them.

Ask your neighbours, Do they have the same problem?

If the answer is Yes then it could indicate your main shut off valve has become faulty.
