Knocking pipes!!


Postby rappo » Tue Jun 24, 2008 3:30 pm

Hi,

When I empty my bath there is a loud knocking sound coming from the pipes which are covered by a boxed section. What is happening here? I can understand pipes knocking when they expand with heat etc... but cannot for the life of me understand why they knock when the bath is emptying.
HELP!! :shock:

See our projects secvtion http://www.diydoctor.org.uk/projects.htm and look for gurgling basin shower and bath. It could be that you also need to secure the pipes with (more) pipe brackets.
