I have been living in my house for about 6 years and always year a ticking sound in the walls when using the upstairs bathroom sink. The sound is behind the sink and the sound accelerates when I continue to use the hot water. Sometimes I hear the sound with the cold water, but more often with the hot water. I have never seen a leak anywhere in six years. What could this be? Could it be a leak? If so, wouldn’t I have seen the walls leaking by now?
It is ticking – is it a bomb??????? nope just the pipes contracting and expanding within the wall cavities – nothing to be greatly allarmed over – just poor plumbing techniques when the pipes were first fitted is all.
