I can hear a banging noise coming from my pipework. What could it be?

If you can hear noises or banging in the pipes inside your property, possible causes are:

  • Faulty ball valves can generate noise
  • If pipes are not clipped correctly, they may move and hit against walls/flooring, creating noise
  • If air is trapped at the stop tap, this can cause the pipes to vibrate and cause a hammering/banging sound
  • Loose fitting washers (jumpers) in stop taps.

A plumber will be able to help you fix the problem, search for a WaterSafe approved plumbing business.
