Fixing Rattling Plumbing & Drain Pipes | A.J. Perri NJ Plumbing Skip to content

My plumbing and drain pipes rattle all of the time. What causes this and what can I do?

This is usually caused by the water lines not being properly secured. This can be fixed easily but only if your water lines are easily accessible. It means that there are one or more places your water lines come in contact with the wood of your floor joists. You will need to get plastic pipe hangers that go between your water lines and your joists. A defective pressure reducing valve can also cause some very strange noises. Unless you are familiar with plumbing and comfortable fixing this type of problem, you should contact a plumber for help.
