Professional, Licensed & Experienced Plumbers
Tap Doctor plumbers are fully licensed, highly knowledgeable with years of experience resolving issues with noisy pipes and water hammer. While most water hammer problems are not absolutely urgent, we are available in most areas 7 days a week where you need emergency help.
How to Fix Noisy Pipes & Water Hammer Problems
When you shut off the water and the pipes bang or rattle it usually means the water pressure is too high. If the banging occurs when water is running it could still be a pressure issue, or it could mean your pipes are coming loose and need to be fastened properly.
Never ignore hammering pipes or you could end up with a burst and a serious leak. When you call a plumber to investigate the cause of the hammer, they might need to install a pressure regulating valve on your mains and an anti-hammer valve in the tap. If loose pipes are the issue the plumber might fasten or sleeve the problem area to stop it moving around.
Gurgling toilets or drains
Slow, gurgling loos strike fear in to the bravest plumbers. They know it could be a simple fix in the cistern or it could be something much worse, depending on if the toilet is running while it gurgles. If it is, they will get in to the cistern and replace any worn parts to keep your loo flushing smoothly.
If the toilet doesn’t run while it gurgles it could be a sign of a blocked sewer line. This could mean you need a replacement sewer line which is not a job for the queasy. Sinks and drain blockages are also common and when that happens it’s important to get a plumber to look closely. The issue could be caused by debris requiring the pipes to be taken apart, or it could be a symptom of poor plumbing which requires more extensive work.
