Loud banging noise
Posted by KatyD on May 18, 2003 at 13:06:35:
A very strange thing happened with the plumbing in my house today. The shower was running, the washing machine
was on and I was cleaning another bathroom when very loud banging started in the basement. I ran down to see
what was happening, and the pipe that comes from the hot water heater was shaking violently and hitting the
rafters above (thus making the bang, bang, bang noise). We immediately turned off all the water and it stopped.
After waiting a while, we started the shower again and now all seems OK.
Still, I'm concerned something is wrong. Should I call a plumber in? We've turned on water at various places and can't
seem to get it to happen again.
I'd appreciate any advice.
