How to Fix Banging Pipes
Unfortunately, there is no easy fix for your banging pipes. You must first properly diagnose the cause of the banging pipes in order to come up with the correct repair. A few of the most common solutions to repair a banging pipe include:
Fix the piping
Piping that is too small, narrow, or wrong in size must be replaced with the proper piping. This often includes tearing down drywall, floors, or anywhere the faulty pipes may be housed. Your plumber should also help you select the best materials for your pipe needs whether it is metal, plastic, or other.
Install an Air Chamber Homes built before the 1960’s usually do not contain an air chamber. They are special components designed exclusively to stop water hammer under normal operating conditions. However, these air chambers are known to fail as well and may need to be replaced.
Adjust Water Pressure
You may check the water pressure coming into your home using a common water pressure gauge that can be found at your local hardware store. Residential water pressure should normally range between 40 PSI and 80 PSI, although there are exceptions. Water pressure that is not within the acceptable range for your property must be adjusted by a professional.
Water Heater Repair
Banging pipes caused by a faulty water heater can generally be repaired with a water heater service. Your expert can flush and fill your water heater to see if it addresses the issue. They can also diagnose other issues and maintenance tasks associated with your water heater.
