    High-pitched noise from water heater

    My American electric hot water heater (with expansion tank) makes a high-pitched noise when outside spigots are only partially open. This happens with the dishwasher also as I guess there's restricted flow there as well. I've flushed the tank which didn't help and checked the tpr valve which...

    Noise related to expansion of copper in Radiant / Hydronic / Baseboard heating

    Hi, I'm curious if there are any experiences/insight beyond standard troubleshooting for this issue. The most practical resolutions i've seen so far are to straighten the fins (which i've done) and to ensure the return pipe is not resting on any metal hooks which could create noise... I do not...

    What in the world is this sound?

    Video not available. Sorry. This was captured by a camera I set up pointed at the water heater. It wakes people in my house at 6 AM or thereabouts nearly every day even though no one is using water or even up. It happens even if no heat/AC is on. The gas company and city (sewer) can find...

    Loud Rumble from Well?

    Every now and again (maybe once a month?) I hear a loud strong rumble that shakes the house a little. I even felt it while sitting out in my backyard once. Felt like a little earthquake! Not sure what it is or how to begin diagnosing it. Any ideas? We are on a well. Thanks!

    Croaking animal type sound coming from water heater

    I'm not sure if this is for sure coming from the hot water heater as I can't pinpoint where it's directly coming from, but I've isolated it to the area of the water heater and seems to be coming from underneath in a pipe or somewhere I can't shine a flashlight into. But the noise as best as I...

    Here's a video I made of the chugging in my pipes after I flush my Toto Drake ST743S toilet and the tank fills. I've replaced the flapper and the flush valve (as suggested on another thread on this site), but it hasn't fixed it. Here's the video, watch the whole thing a little over 3 minutes...
