In response to Re: Pipes knocking
: In my home, when you first turn on the hot water, the pipes knock quite loudly as they expand. Is there a fix for this?

The piping under (or over) your house is probably loose somewhere and the initial motion of the water is causing the pipe to rattle against the floorboards. To secure the pipe, be sure to use approved plumbing clips that will not cut into the pipe.
