Why Is My Sink Making Gurgling and Banging Sounds?
Pipes make noise. But if your drains are making persistent gurgling or banging sounds, frequently emanating from your sink or elsewhere in your house, there may be something going on that’s out of the ordinary. Find out what the issue could be here, and call a plumber at Dutton Plumbing for all your drain clearing needs.
Reasons Your Drains Are Making Those Sounds
- Blocked Drains/Vent Pipes: If the problem is serious enough that you hear banging or gurgling in your toilet, it may be because of a blocked drain/vent pipe. You’ll want to have a professional plumber come out immediately if you suspect this is the case, and see what is causing the blockage.
- Collapsed or Damaged Pipes: A collapsed or damaged pipe can make a lot of noise from the water or wind flowing out of it, and will also require the experience of a professional who can help replace your equipment.
- Dirt and Grease Buildup: When dirt and grease build up in plumbing over time, it can cause your water to drain slowly. Air bubbles won’t be able to go through your pipes and into a vent when this happens and, as a result, your drains will make a gurgling noise. You may be able to solve this problem on your own with the aid of chemicals, though it is still a good idea to have your drains professionally cleaned periodically.
