The hammering or knocking sounds you hear from your water heater are usually caused by something called a water hammer. A water hammer is something that happens when the flow of water in a pipe is suddenly stopped or slowed down. When there’s a sudden surge of pressure in the pipe, it can create a shock wave that makes the pipe vibrate. This vibration can result in a hammering or knocking sound.
