Why do Plumbing Pipes Groan and Bang?

If you have lived in a house or apartment in Philadelphia that has had plumbing issues, then you will be acutely aware of the loud and annoying bangs that often come with issues of this nature. In truth, it is not uncommon for homes of all shapes and sizes to have weird and unusual sounds coming from the pipes. A groaning or banging sound could be attributed to a faulty ballcock or fill valve, or can happen if the water pressure in your home is set too high. In general, these problems are easy for a professional plumber to fix but only if they are taken care of before the issue becomes too much of a problem.

How to Silence Plumbing Pipe Problems

As one of the leading plumbing teams in Philadelphia, we have acquired a lot of knowledge throughout our years of service. This includes knowing how to silence any type of plumbing pipe problem. A groaning or banging noise that starts out as a minor inconvenience can soon turn into a far bigger problem for, your family or even your neighbors’ sanity if left unaddressed. What’s more, failing to address the noise from your home’s pipes is not only going to cause increased inconvenience, it could also end up costing you thousands of dollars in the long-run. In many ways, the noise that comes from your pipes is the plumbing in your home’s way of telling you that something isn’t right. It is in your best interests that you don’t ignore these signs. With that in mind, here are three solutions that we have used in homes and businesses across Philadelphia for years.

  1. If your pipes are making a regular coughing sound then it may be because a crack has occurred and air is entering the pipe. Our skilled team of plumbers can quickly remedy this problem.
  2. If you are sick of a constant gurgling sound coming from your pipes then you need to do something about it. In general, gurgling sounds usually are a toilet-related problem. If your toilet flushes correctly but keeps on running then you are going to have a problem. Call us and have one of our team clean the flap correctly and have it replaced if necessary.
  3. A drip from a pipe in your home or business is a sign of one thing—a leak. Our plumbers will fix the leak in a quick and effective manner.

Water Heater Services

Whether your heater is the conventional kind, tankless, a hybrid heat pump, or even solar, we can maintain and repair it to the highest standard. And, if you’re looking to replace an old heater or just update your system, we’re happy to help.


Your classic water heater works with through the storage method. Equipped with a large water tank, water is held and heated with an element until it is needed. Gas or electric, these heaters tend to last 10-15 years. With proper maintenance, they could hold out for even longer!


A tankless water heater is the eco-friendly option! By not using a tank, this type of heater only uses water on demand. Many Philadelphia homeowners are choosing to upgrade to tankless. They even last just as long if not longer than convention heaters!

Heat Pump

Heat pumps are great because of their dual use as heater or air conditioner. Lasting an average of 15 years, hybrid heat pumps use both water and energy obtained by air to heat the water, and can conserve even more energy than a tankless heater.


The ultimate in green energy. Heat your home with the sun! Solar heaters will even conserve some water for cloudy days so you’re always prepared.
