What are Airlocks in Pipes?

Air in pipes restrict the free flow of water through the system. Pipes carry water and air sometimes causing the latter to rise to the upper part of the pipe. Pockets of air stop water from flowing with the application pressure.

Airlocks in pipes can affect household plumbing if pipes aren’t properly maintained. So how do you know you if you may have an airlock?

  • Water sputters out of pipes even if taps are completely open.
  • No water flow even though the shut-off valve on the mains is open.

You may also notice cold water flows freely whilst hot water flows at irregular intervals, or not at all.
