knocking hot water pipe
Posted by Ken on July 26, 19100 at 08:39:12:

We just bought a new house and have found that the main shower's hot water tap has some strange behavior:
After we turn it on and the water becomes hot, it starts to bang then shuts off. When we turn it on a bit
more the banging goes away and the water comes again, but very strong.

Any thoughts as to what this may be? It doesn't seem to be 'water hammer;' could it be as simple as a washer?

Thanks for the great site!
