Pipe Noises Explained by our London Plumber

Pipe Noises Explained by our London Plumber

The water noises made by your pipes in your home in London are important because they can provide a clue of what is happening with the piping system on your property. They are not to be ignored, as these little issues can be resolved by local plumbers before becoming more severe. Here are a few pipe noises explained by our plumbers in London:

Thumping pipes

Being fabricated from metal, the pipes used to supply water in your house can vibrate or produce water noises in London in the entire home. If there is an excess thumping, this could indicate that the pipes are not correctly secured or there is a blockage in them. If that is the case, it will have to be eliminated to obtain a flowing water supply, which will decrease the thumping and an emergencyplumber in London can resolve this problem for you.

Splashing noise

If there is a splashing noise like a cistern or tank refills, it is only the noise made by the water flowing out of the valve under pressure. A specialized professional in plumbing services in London could install a Torbeck valve (incorporating a polythene collapsible tube to set the incoming water below the level of the water), which will reduce the noise greatly. Or, an insulating cold water storage tank can also decrease the water noise in London.

Tooting showerhead

tooting noise produced by the showerhead could be the result of a clogged showerhead. If you unscrew it and clean it, this can eliminate buildup and residues which could be producing the water noise in London. If it is still noisy afterwards, it might be the right moment to replace the showerhead. Our plumbers in London are available at any hour for this job or for any other plumbing problems.  

Pump noises

If you have a central heating system in your house and the pump is creating noises, the solution might consist of reducing the pump pressure. 

For a shower pump, it is recommended to verify that the pump pipes were linked with flexible connections, as well as that the pump is installed on flexible mounting. Make sure that the pump does not touch any object around it too, which could actually intensify the water noise in London.
