Air in Pipes when turning water on
Posted by Linda on May 18, 2003 at 15:34:43:
I travel frequently and have been turning off my water when I leave. However, when I return home and turn the water back on and then turn on a faucet in the house, I get very loud banging - I guess from air in the pipes. I'm afraid I'll damage the pipes. Should I not turn the water off when I go away for a while? Is this loud banging normal? It goes away after I open all the faucets.
thank you very much
