If you hear the sound of banging pipes when you turn on your faucet, you likely have a serious problem with your plumbing. Banging pipes, or water hammer occurs when pipes are loose and move when water flows through them. Over time the pressure of moving water can dislodge your pipes and cause leaks or a massive burst.
Banging pipes are just one of many telltale signs that you’re plumbing may need a thorough inspection. Fast Rooter Plumbing LLC is Oahu’s top family owned plumbing service, helping homeowners with everything from clogged drains to toilet repairs for the last 20 years.
In addition to banging pipes, here are a few other important signs that your plumbing may need repairs:
- Visible Condensation: This occurs when the temperature of the pipes is cooler than the air around it. Water condensing can run off and soak floorboards or support beams. Over time this can cause serious structural damage to your home.
- Dirt or Debris in Water: This can be a number of issues, but it is a clear sign that something is wrong with your plumbing network. This can be due to a penetrating leak in your pipes or even your hot water heater.
- Reduction in Water Pressure: If you begin to see a decrease in water pressure from your faucets or sinks, you may have a clog or a leak.
