banging of pipes
Posted by Brad Smith on August 28, 1998 at 16:37:28:
After replacing and coverting my water heaterto gas and relocating it next to the chimney for exhaust. I've had banging of the water pipes ever since. I've installed suppressors, etc, but it still happens regardless if the hot or cold water is turned on. The main thing here is that, I'm connected to city water and if I turn off the input cold water to the heater, I don't get a bang from an device opening up the hot or cold water. What could be wrong? - Bad chamber in the water heater??? I've put up with it for six years now and plan to replace the water heater 30 gal with a 40 gal one.
