What is a water hammer?

Answer: Pipes are designed to let water and other liquids to stream without interruption. When this happens, you are going to hear the sound of water flowing smoothly and steadily. Whereas, when the flow of water is interrupted due to water closing down rapidly, it can make noise or vibrations shaking your entire house. The shaking, banging, and thumping is called water hammer. In such situation, always call Clean Plumbing Melton right away.
