General Questions

It sounds as if the toilet flush handle gets stuck, causing the tank stopper to stay open. This allows the water in the tank to continuously flow into the bowl. Make an adjustment by oiling, tightening. or replacing the flush handle.

To temporarily stop a small leak, break off a pencil point in the pipe hole and then wrap the pipe with three layers of plastic electrician’s tape, extending 3 inches on either side of the hole. You can also clamp a piece of rubber, such as an old rubber glove, over the leak. If it’s a major leak, though, turn off the water supply immediately at the main shutoff valve and replace the pipe.

Water hammer (the noise you’ve described) occurs because the water in the pipes slams to a stop, causing a shock wave and a hammering noise. It’s not only annoying but also destructive to the pipes. You can minimize or eliminate water hammer by installing air chambers dead-end pieces of pipe. Most washing machine manufacturers recommend extra-long chambers—up to 24 inches—to provide added cushion for abrupt turnoffs.

The two most common causes for such noises are steam and sediment in the tank. You can often correct steam problems by merely lowering the thermostat setting. If you suspect a faulty thermostat, turn the setting all the way down: then if the heat source doesn’t go off, replace the thermostat. To get rid of problem-causing sediment in your water heater, open the drain valve at the bottom of the tank and drain off a little water until it runs clear. Draining the sediment should eliminate noise problems and allow your heater to operate more efficiently.
