If water pressure becomes too high or air gets in the pipes we may hear a hissing sound when we open a faucet. If this happens consistently, you should have your plumber check the lines. It may be a problem with the Water Provider’s system but it could also be a leak in a pipe or you may need your plumber to install a pressure reducing valve on your plumbing system.
There is also a condition called “water hammer”. It is a thudding or hammer-like sound that can occur after a faucet or valve is turned off. Plumbers can easily remedy this minor problem. All it takes to get rid of this issue is to have your plumber install air chambers in the water lines to act as shock absorbers. When properly installed, these fittings will do the trick and it’s goodbye to that noise.
When a faucet is already worn out or possibly not installed properly, it can cause the most annoying screeching or chattering sound you’ve ever heard…especially when your mate is in the Bathroom late at night and you’re trying to sleep. The only solution to this is to change that part out with a new one properly installed by your plumber in Plano. If you decide to try to do it yourself, be very careful. Older water stops or pipe in the walls can also be defective and the damage can be extensive…did I say expensive? This is a problem that normally requires the knowledge and expertise of a trained plumber. It’s better call them to avoid further damage.
