If your pipes bang and clang loudly when you turn on a tap, you might have a problem with water hammer. Water hammer happens when water flowing with a lot of momentum suddenly comes to a stop, such as when a washing machine's automatic shut off closes. Fixing the problem can be as easy as shutting off the main valve and draining your plumbing system. If that doesn't work, installing an arrestor or adding pipe straps and insulation can make a big difference.
