If it is expansion, then a new water heater would still create hot water and I do not see how that would cure anything. Unless the noise is from deposits in the water heater itself.

: Hi -

: I've noticed that my pipes are "banging" at irregular intervals. The plumber I spoke to diagnosed the problem as expanding pipes from the hot water. But this seems unusually loud; I never thought pipes would bang like this from expanding!

: Anyway, aside from replacing the pipes(!), would a new water heater help solve the problem?
