    Hi Everyone. Just joined this chatroom to seek help with a water bang/plumbing/well pump problem that appears to be getting worse. Hope you can help! We have a well, with a pump that is now 27 years old. The well fills a tank (blue) in the house, that has that bladder thing, and the well is set...

    I recently changed the valve cartridge in tub/shower Now I get a sustained jack-hammer noise when the valve is in the warm position. Full cold or full hot work fine no noise, just in the middle position. I have shut off the main and opened all valves to drain, then refilled system. The Noise...

    Hi Good Day! I am new here and would like to seek good advice in this forum, for disturbance noises caused by faulty water pipe system. I live in a 5th floor unit of public housing, in recent months it has been a loud “knocking” noise intermittently coming from the upper floor and it’s a...

    My front load washer fills using intermittent spurts. My pipes bang and jump, primarily the hot water pipes. The problem has significantly worsened over the last few months. I put water hammer arrestors on the hot and cold water valves between the washer's supply hoses and the water valves. No...

    It's the oddest thing. The water hammer only occurs in the guest room shower, no where else in the house. It only seems to happen when the hot water temperature is a bit cooler (after someone else's shower or when the tank timer has been off for a while). If I open a HW faucet anywhere in...

    Just recently I've been hearing a thumping sound after I flush my toilet. Usually it happens when the tank is filling up and I am running my sink faucet at the same time. The thumping sound usually goes away after the toilet tank fills up. This happens with at least 2 or 3 of my toilets. The...

    Hi, I think I have a water hammer problem, but I don't know how to solve it properly. About 70% of the faucets when shut off (and sometimes turning on now) are causing my refrigerator to have a banging sound. The volume of the sound is dependent on how fast the water is shut-off. I plan...

    I am in a townhouse and since my new neighbors have moved in I've been having trouble with my pipes making banging noises at random times during the day. When I say banging, I mean it sounds like someone is hammering against the wall very loud and very fast and I can hear it anywhere in my...

    Hi All, I have been having a water hammer problem for the past couple of weeks. :furious:I looked at the videos that tell you to drain the system. I did that and the problem left for about a day and a half. :(I'm thinking that I will have to install arrestors. My question is I have a building...

    Where would you put water hammer arrestors in this situation: 1 2 or 3? If 2 or 3, I would use a 90 to ensure the arrestor is vertical. The Bosch is vibrating when turning on the hot water heater; it, too often, errors out causing me to reset the heater. After researching this, it seems to...

    Lately (last few months) when we run the dishwasher, during the first cycle (and a few times in the complete cycle) the pipes in our house will rumble REALLY LOUD - like a jackhammer for about 3 minutes each time. If I turn on the water in the sink, the noise will stop. Once I turn the water...
