Let a Skilled Edmonton Plumber Deal with That Destructive Water Hammer
Water hammer is described in a HowStuffWorks.com article as a “specific plumbing noise” that points to a possible problem with your water pressure. It happens right after you turn off a faucet, and the fast moving water comes to a quick stop. This creates some kind of “shock wave”, which causes the hammering sound. Proper plumbing comes with air chambers or cushions that soften these shock waves. If you are unsure if your plumbing has these, call reliable Edmonton plumbers to check, as these could save you a great deal of trouble later on. If the problem has been building for some time, however, the air chambers could eventually fail.
