When the faucet is used for a long time, it will be found that the water pipe often shakes suddenly when the water is turned off, and then it makes a "beep" sound. It feels like someone is hitting a building with a hammer. In fact, this kind of situation occurs because of the water hammer Phenomenon, a very common problem.

Why does water faucet appear water hammer? The following AFA Stainless Steel Faucets manufacturers analyze it:

In fact, the so-called water hammer phenomenon is mainly that when we suddenly close the faucet or valve in our lives, the water in the water pipe will continue to flow forward rapidly due to inertia. This will easily cause the pressure in the water pipe to suddenly increase, and the sound will sound. It's like hitting with a hammer. In addition, if the water pipes at home are not fixed properly, water hammer may occur if they appear loose or even fall off.

In addition to the above reasons, the occurrence of water hammer may also be because there is air in the water pipe in the home, and the sudden pressure drop causes the air and water flow in the water pipe to squeeze each other. Therefore, when the water pipe is just installed in the home, the air in it must be exhausted before stopping the water.

As for the impact of this water hammer phenomenon on the water pipe, it is naturally very large. It will not disappear automatically, and the longer the hidden danger will be greater, it will not only damage the valve and the fixing parts, but also the water pipe may appear. Burst phenomenon.

In order to solve the water hammer phenomenon, it is best to design some buffer measures and equipment when installing the water pipe in the early stage, such as a water hammer eliminator, which can eliminate the shock wave in the water pipe and play a good protective role. If the water pipe is detached, find a new one and fix it. In addition, find a sponge or an old towel to wrap the water pipe, which can also solve the water hammer phenomenon.

Finally, it is recommended that we also pay attention when using the faucet, and try to extend the valve opening and closing time as much as possible, and do not close it too quickly after using the faucet, this can reduce the damage to the faucet and extend its service life!
