Bumps in the Night

Posted: Wednesday, July 25th, 2012 at 5:07 AM | Category: Blog Post

Seems that one of the most common questions I am asked is about noises that someone hears, mostly at night.

I can assure you, there are no Ghoulies in your toilets.

There are many reasons you may hear noises in your home from time to time. A flapper in your toilet may be worn, causing your toilet to cycle. A fill valve in your toilet may have bad washers. The air chambers in the piping might be water logged and need to be recharged with air. The water heater may have too much sediment in the tank. Perhaps there is a loose water pipe in the wall that may vibrate when water is running. A bad solenoid valve on an appliance. Water pressure is too high.

I can go on and on about noises you house could make, and that is just the plumbing!

There are a few things you can do. You could chalk it up to your house as just talking to you and ignore them. You could try to find the problem yourself and make a repair. You could also call your favorite plumber. Just don’t let it go too long, you will see an increase in your water bill.

I would like to take this opportunity and thank everyone at the Herald for allowing me to write this article every month. I would also like anyone who ever has a question regarding their plumbing, to call me anytime at the office 561-202-2110 or E mail me at rdhessing@charlieswainplumbing.com I am always glad to talk to anyone at any time about plumbing.
