It sounds like somebody dumped a box of softball-sized rocks on a driveway! And it's not just one bam, but goes for a full second or two. Where should I start looking? thanks

I would start with checking you're water pressure and the temp of you're hot water.

Noisy Pipe


Could someone shed some light on this one for me!

I have not long ago moved into my new home and have been experiencing difficulties with the water flow going through my mixer taps in the bath and upstairs sink.All of a sudden I hear a noise like air getting trapped in the sink tap and then water spurts out,air gap and then a bit more then a stop.This occurs a while after it has been turned on and off.The mixer tap in the bath for the shower throws a wobbler when I put the washing machine on and gushes out cold water when seconds before it had been set at a comfortable level for washing with both cold and hot water going through it.

It has been suggested to me that the water pressure has been set too low could it be that causing the trouble?:confused:

Just curious if your'e in a "new home" wouldn't it be under warranty. Also, are you on a well?

I know this is extremely old and someone just might see it. I am a newbie. I am on a well. My father-in-law, who installed the well, said it is supposed to do that. I know it has not been doing it the whole time we have been living in this (one of his 3 houses) house.

What would cause this hammer noise in the kitchen? It's the only place I hear it is when I turn on the water in the sink.
