Why Are My Pipes Rattling?

Rated 4.9 out of 998 reviews

The plumbing in your walls is extremely important and needs to be reliable, but it should be so quiet you don’t even remember that it’s there. However, sometimes plumbing can decide to make its presence known, and does so with a thumping or rattling noise that’s both annoying and worrisome.

Three Reasons Your Pipes Are Rattling

Water Hammer

This banging or rattling noise is often referred to as “water hammer”, and it’s caused by a blocked vent pipe in your plumbing. Water moving through your pipes can create a vacuum, which is normally dispelled by a vent that pokes out through the roof near your faucet or plumbing fixture. However, when the vent is clogged, a vacuum can form, and this vacuum can create the hammering noise.

There’s a fairly easy way you can try to fix this:

High Pressure

High water pressure is also a cause of loud banging and rattling noises in your pipes.

You should contact a Covina plumbing expert and ask about installing a pressure regulator or reduction valve, which can allow water to flow through your home at a more reasonable speed, which is also much easier on your plumbing and your water-supplied appliances.

Loose Mounts

Vibration or rattling sounds could be a symptom of a loose fitting or mount somewhere in your lines.
