    Default Banging Noise in water line

    I recently fixed a leaking shower by replacing the cartridge in the handle. The leak is fixed, but now I have a banging noise when I turn the water on and off. I assume that when I turned off the water supply, drained the pipes to fix the shower, then turned the water supply back on, I somehow got water in the pipe that's supposed to have air to cushion the pressure. I have tried shutting off the water and draining the lines again, but can't get the noise to stop. Any ideas??

    what type of shower valve? american standard, delta, moen, symmons?

    If this is a Symmons shower valve the new spindle could be defective. My recommendation is to return the spindle, say its defective and try a new spindle. Make sure that you are replacing all internal parts of the shower valve if the shower valve has them (hot & cold seats).


    Good Luck!!
