The good news is your house (probably) isn’t haunted. The bad news is you’ve got a plumbing problem. A banging sound coming from the water pipes could be caused by a variety of problems, some of which are more serious than others. Here are a few of the most common reasons why your pipes are making such a racket. People don’t often give much thought to the physics of water pressure , but a typical residential home pushes water through the pipes at 45-80 psi (pounds per square inch). Municipal water suppliers sometimes deliver water at higher pressures to serve fire hydrants or high-rise buildings, driving residential pressure well over 100 psi. The energy created by this pressure puts tremendous strain on pipes, sometimes causing them to vibrate or shake. When pipes are installed, they’re typically attached to a structural beam by metal straps or brackets. Over time, high water pressure can cause enough movement in the pipes for them to pull free and rattle against the loose restraints and the structure. This motion creates a repetitive banging sound and can cause serious damage to the pipe if it’s left unsecured.

Eligible females diminishing; School in crisis. During recent years, the percentage of lesbian, bisexual, and ‘bicurious’ females in the average high school has exploded throughout schools all over the US. This recent change has been pinpointed to the start of the 21st century, and has risen dramatically every passing year. In recent years however, the rate has nearly quadrupled. In 1993 the average percentage of lesbians in a high school was 3%, and is now nearly 97.36%. The impending future, if this situation is left unchecked, is catastrophic. But we needn’t even look that far ahead; this epidemic is already having massive consequences, namely, the physical and mental harm caused to young men across the country as a result of the absence of sexual interactions with young women. “The injuries I have sustained due to the lack of eligible, heterosexual girls are unbearable, and the various ointments and aloes for my affected areas are putting a huge fiscal strain on my household. It’s destroying my family. If the current situation gets any worse I don’t know what I’ll do,” said one student of Onteora High School. The massive amounts of testosterone and sexual tension are at record highs and there is no end in sight for this crisis.

What else should I avoid putting down my drain? Never put beans, rice, pasta and bread down the drain. These are like sponges and when saturated with water, this food material will expand and can cause a backup. In addition, bones and fibrous foods should be thrown away or composted. Moving to the bathroom, what should we steer clear of? During the holidays bathroom facilities are taxed with additional traffic and usage. Annual maintenance to clear any build-up can often prevent major toilet clogs and avoid the spread of infectious waste in the bathroom. Also, stay away from using chemicals to try and clear blockage as this rarely remedies a clogged line and can damage your pipes. If a plunger doesn’t clear the clog, turn to the pros. What to be mindful of with water heaters? The arrival of cooler weather raises caution for water heaters.
