Are you scared of the loud banging noise coming out on closing the taps or faucet? And you could not predict why it is happening in the very first place? Fret not! Such noises are a common household sight. And the situation is named as the water hammer. Water Hammer is the noise that occurs when too much pressure is created in these pipes, and especially when the valve is closed. As the pipe is closed the banging or the thumping sound starts, making it sensitive for our ears or even frightening at times.
This can be a “common” residential or the commercial issue, or wherever the piping systems are unable to expand. In simpler terms, it is a sight that occurs when a fluid in motion is prevented from moving further. This requires an urgent action as if the problem is left unchecked it could deteriorate the situation causing the pipe to even explode. These are further caused due to incorrect plumbing installations. Or at times, can occur when the faucet is closed, making the water (fluid) to change its direction. The flow of water is stopped; this point is a known to have extremely high pressure. Thus, it leads to the thumping or the pounding noises or even vibrations.
