Water Hammer Repairs

Water Hammer Repairs – Call 24/7 on 1300-655-827

Water hammer is the term for squeals, groans and knocking coming from your pipes and is a sign of pipes struggling under pressure.

As water moves from large pipes to smaller ones and the pressure is too high you will hear squealing noises or the sound of pipes protesting. The problem needs to be professionally fixed to avoid pressure build ups and burst pipes which is more common than people realise. Often pipes burst in walls or hard to get areas which can do extensive damage to walls, floors and carpets. It’s important that issues with noisy pipes get addressed in a timely fashion.

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.

We recently had an awesome experience with The Tap Doctor South branch & the mrs said we should share the experience because we are pretty happy with the outcome & think it could be valuable to others.
Our hot water tank was leaking water from the bottom of the tank and we had no hot water pressure in our house.
We built this house in 2003, and we’ve had a couple issues with the tank not re-lighting and valves leaking in the past, so we were not surprised when we were informed we needed a new one.
We called them because my old man told us to as he had used them before and he was happy.
We had a lady plumber arrive (I was a bit surprised to see a lady plumber if I’m honest but she was bloody fantastic) and we think she is an asset to the company.
She was easy to deal with, professional, & the new system looks awesome.
The thing we liked about the company mostly was we were given a quote first with all inclusive costs upfront and it was the same figure on completion, so no hidden charges.
We didn’t have to pay for her to come and give us a quote.
She was on time – a bit earlier actually &
Job was done same day.
Yes we would use this company again if needed.

Dr Brian arrived like Superman and fixed every issue
So impressed with this company
I had contacted two other well known plumbing companies: still waiting for one to get back to me over a week later & the other; the guy actually said “oh; the phone doesn’t ring very often” ….and ” I could pop out on Saturday and have a look for you”
Tap Doctor was efficient: has a regular communication set up so you’re on top of timing
I totally trusted the assessment of issues & the overall workmanship
Brilliant 🙂

Had an emergency; fast-flowing leak with hot water cascading out from under the sink. Phoned tap doctors, and the gorgeous Reece (that’s him on the ad: tall, dark, handsome and tattooed!) was at our’s within an hour! No call-out fee, he had to go get the part as our system is from Jurassic park, installed it & was all done & dusted within 40 minutes. Impressive, or what?! The tap doctor, the tap doctor YEAH!!

I had a blocked main drain & called Tap Doctor at 11am to get an appointment.

Being a Friday, I thought I’d be lucky to get anyone out before Monday so I was amazed not just that I got an appointment within the hour but the plumber also turned up when he said he would.

Also like previous times I’ve used the Tap Doctor service, he left everything more neat and tidy than he found it.

He explained up front what was involved & what the costs would be.
It wasn’t cheap but the plumber was good and turned up on time at very short notice.

So in the case of a plumbing emergency, good & quick take precedence over cheap

I have had too many experiences of plumbers with cheaper quotes for other jobs who turn up 3 hours late or sometimes not at all.

Any tradie who tells you they are cheap, good, fast and punctual is promising the impossible.

But with Tap Doctor, getting the latter 3 out of 4 is quite likely.

Tom did an excellent job of plumbing for a dishwasher in an awkward area. Tidied up beautifully. Would recommend TapDoctor South -they attend to queries & requests promptly & provided a backup service when there was a hitch with booking arrangements.

We found Andy to be a pleasant young man who once we had explained the nature of our plumbing problem (a blocked drain), got the equipment from his van and efficiently cleared out the pipe.
We’ll be using the Tap Doctor again as the person handling our initial contact was helpful and the man on site, Andy knew the ropes (pipes, actually) and our little home was functioning again.

Many thanks
