    What is water hammer? This is the term coined for a common household plumbing problem that can usually be found affecting pipes in washing machines, dishwashers, toilets etc. It often takes the form of scary, thudding noises echoing through the house. This is caused by high water pressure when an appliance/tap is turned off rather abruptly. Water hammer can cause quite the damage to your plumbing system because it eventually gives way to broken pipes, leaks and other burdens.

    What else contributes to water hammer?

    High water pressure and quick-shutting valves are primarily what gives way to water hammer but there are also a few secondary factors that definitely don’t make the situation any better. Want to stay on top of the situation and remove all risks? Here’s what you need to know:

    • Old pipes- Pipes that have been poorly installed or those worn out pipes that have become loose over the years tend to rattle when faced with high water pressure.
    • Older appliances- Appliances that take in and release a large amount of water tend to increase chances of water hammer so, if your appliances are older, they might be in need of repairs.
    • Poor plumbing- By not committing to regular plumbing maintenance, you allow problems like water hammer to worsen over time. Call your local, trusted plumbers at Nationwide Plumbing to catch these plumbing woes and provide you with the best solutions.
