|In response to Re: Air in Pipes when turning water on|
: : : : 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 LINDA;The loud banging is not normal,but its a good idea to turn water off when leaving for a few days. We do the same here.You don't say whether your on a city or a country system (well and press. tank) Also do you have a water softener? Post the additional info and we'll try and advise what is causing the noise... Hube
: : thanks...Hube...
: Do you turn the power to your water heater off?
>>>To answer Hube, Yes I hear air gurgling sound when turning on the taps - and it can last for a couple of times. For Deb - no I don't turn the power to water heater off. The water heater is located on the opposite side of the house from the water main where the soft water tank is.
