What else could cause noises in my plumbing pipes?
All your appliances and
plumbing fixtures that have water shut off valves inside them can cause banging, vibrating and whistling.
Clothes washers, dishwashers, coffee pots, outside spigots, yard hydrants. Water pumps of all types have rubber
gaskets that can wear, well pumps, whirlpool pumps, Jacuzzi pumps, pond pumps and even pool pumps. Not all of
these pumps are connected to your house plumbing system of course.
Beyond water itself causing
problems, if your plumbing pipes are lose, they bang against walls and floors with the slightest water hammer.
Restraining your water pipes with the correct mounting brackets; installed at the proper distance between each
one will defiantly help correct minor banging noises.
