What’s That Sound?
Sometimes the most obvious answer is the right one. Rattling could mean that your water pipes aren’t fitted correctly. If you can reach the pipework you can re-establish proper fitting by tightening bolts or replacing worn-out fixtures. However, if this does not solve the issue or you can’t reach it, we recommend seeking our professional help, so the problem doesn’t get worse.
If the water pressure gets too high for the plumbing system’s capacity, you might hear a hum when the water is running. Do a quick check. You want to set the pressure to no more than 80psi (551kPa). In homes where the pressure exceeds 60psi (413kPa), Canadian plumbing code requires that a pressure regulating valve (PVR) be installed. Call us to assist you, because high water pressure can lead to the premature deterioration of piping systems, water heater and faucets.
This noise indicates the presence of an obstruction in the pipes. The reason may be the build-up of debris, dirt or scum. We can unclog any drain with our industry-leading drain and sewer equipment. If there is an underlying issue with the plumbing itself, we provide you with an no obligation, cost-effective quote to repair.
Your plumbing system relies on many small components to make faucets and valves work properly. Hardware such as washers, nuts and bolts may become loose or worn out over time. Replacing these components should be easy with proper precautions, but if you are not confident, call us.
