People may hear a loud banging or thump on closing the taps and may ponder hard why such thing happens? The situation is called as water hammer. This happens due to change in the direction of the flow of water. This change of momentum becomes a point of increased pressure. This increase in pressure can be the cause of future discomfort and plumbing annoyance.

The restricted water will make a certain noise, which normally comes out as a thumping sound. At times, it leads to the pipe damage. Often the noise may be just of chatter and not a thump, denoting the problem in the washer or valve. The experienced plumber can help identify the problem by just listening to the noise.

And the water hammer is a common reason for the air chambers getting waterlogged.
