Why do my Pipes Rattle and Make Noises all the Time?

Why do my Pipes Rattle and Make Noises all the Time?

The water pipes in your home have a simple, yet very important job to do. They ensure that you and other home occupants have a clean supply of water, not only for drinking, but for showering, cooking, washing, and other essential tasks. Generally, you don’t have to worry all that much about your pipes, but they may occasionally begin making noises and rattling—this should raise a red flag.

Now, most homes in Anaheim, Irvine, Fullerton, Newport Beach, Garden Grove, and all throughout Orange County possess a tremendous amount of value. Noisy, rattling pipes in a home are more than just a nuisance—they can signal serious problems that should not be ignored. If left uncorrected, the causes of noisy pipes can damage your entire plumbing system, which can significantly lower the value of your home and force you to spend a significant amount of money on pipe repair.

When pipes constantly rattle and make noises, the conditions typically are caused by one of a few factors.

Pipe Noises Caused by Water Hammer

Water hammer, also known as hydraulic shock, is a rapid increase in water pressure when the speed or direction of water in pipes changes suddenly. It’s most noticeable when you turn faucets off abruptly or start up or turn off appliances that use water, such as dishwashers and washing machines. If your pipes rattle and produce a banging noise when the water is turned off, water hammer is the likely issue. It is capable of doing damage to your pipes and appliances.

Rattling Pipes Caused by Loose Supports

As water moves through your pipes at varying speeds and volumes, it changes the weight of the pipes. If your pipes are not properly supported, even normal water can cause them to rattle or knock against one another. If you think the rattling in your pipes is caused by loose supports, give us a call—we can install pipe supports that will hold your pipes in place and make them less likely to rattle.

Pipes that rattle and make noises usually signal a more serious plumbing problem in your home. Contact us—we’ll send a professional, experienced plumber to your home to assess the situation.
