Anchoring your pipes can eliminate the hammering and squeaking noises caused by loose pipes and fitting. Exposed pipes will have to be anchored. Get a professional to anchor any hidden pipes if you do not wish to do some work in your floors or walls by yourself. Look for water damage by looking at loose tiles. One cause for loose tiles is a water leak. You should press on tiles to see if they yield to the pressure you are placing on it. The quicker you know there’s a problem, the quicker you can fix it.
During cold, winter months, drain and disconnect your garden hoses. If they are not drained and disconnected, garden hoses are a source of potential damage to any water pipes they share a connection with. You can leave your pipes hooked up in the garage if it stays warm in there.
