Do you need a pipe repair? If there are rattling pipes throughout your home or business, this could be an indication your pipes are old or need repair. However, there are a few clever tools you can use to secure your rattling pipes. Let’s find the solutions you need to get some peace and quiet in your life:
1. PIPE ANCHORS
If you have access to your pipes, you can secure them by adding pipe anchors. Over time, pipe anchors can work their way loose. You may need to remove old pipe anchors if they have stripped screws or corroded clamps. You can then replace them with brand new, secure anchors fitted to your pipes.
2. PIPE CUSHIONING
You can put cushioning around your pipes to prevent them from rattling and also to insulate them. This is a good idea for shorter lengths of pipe, but you could find it a little resource-intensive if you need to fix a large amount of piping.
3. WATER PRESSURE VALVES
If your home’s water pressure is high and your pipes are rattling, it’s possible to fix them just by lowering the water pressure. You can usually find the water pressure valve outside of your home near the water meter. It’s possible you might also have valves in your home that are shutting too fast which can lead to clattering; these will need replacement.
If your pipes are still rattling after trying the above troubleshooting tips, it’s time to call in professional plumbing services. Contact the experts at Dependable Service for a pipe repair evaluation today.
