Reliable plumbing doesn't just give Pittsburgh homeowners a smooth flow of water for sources like bathtubs, sinks, and washing machines - it should do it all quietly, as well. If your pipes are "singing" every time you turn on the tap or flush the toilet, they're actually trying to tell you that you have a big problem you need to fix! Don't worry - the 24/7 emergency Pittsburgh plumbers at Stahl are here to save the day and quiet them down.
My Pipes Whine and Squeak
Most commonly heard in toilet tanks, loud whining or squeaking after the toilet is flushed could indicated an issue with your tank valve or washers in the flush mechanism. When bolts work themselves loose over time, they can cause formerly-watertight seals to float or become loose, giving incoming tank water a narrow gap to whistle through. If you also have a problem with perpetually-running water in your tank, that small annoying sound can become a real headache. Thankfully, our Pittsburgh plumbing professionals can stop it in its tracks with tools and expertise in only a few minutes.
My Pipes Are Banging and Chattering
As water flows through your pipes, it might not always go smoothly. It can produce loud bangs and deafening vibrations that turn the hot water cycle in your washing machine into a loud cacophony. This occurs when water flows too quickly through a pipe that is suddenly cut off or blocked, leading the water to slam into the obstacle loudly. Chattering pipes occur when pipe slings - metal bands that support long stretches of pipe - are broken or compromised. If you're hearing these types of loud noises, we can help you pinpoint the source and put an end to it for good.
My Pipes Moan and Groan
Older pipes that have trouble keeping up with demands may emit low groans as they attempt to expand and carry an excess of water, either in volume or temperature. If you haven't had your plumbing assessed lately, Stahl plumbers can make recommendations and observations that will help your plumbing setup align with your household's daily water needs. You deserve water on demand, at the right temperature, without pipes that "complain" loudly!
