Reasons for Plumbing Noise: Pipe Size Changes

30 Mar 2024

 by Brett Mulhall

PVC pipes produce a cracking sound as it expand with heat and contract when cooled. Hot water expands the pipes and as it cools, the pipes contract causing the crackling sound.

Also, copper pipes also expand and contract when temperatures change, but since its malleable, it can endure the impacts of heat without being damaged.
