SAMPLE QUESTION: “Hi Ed, after saving for years, we finally completed our new kitchen. We love the layout and our ‘state-of-the art’ plumbing fixtures. The only issue we need to resolve is that when the dishwasher cycles, we get a banging noise in our water pipes. The appliance guy says the dishwasher is fine, and we need to check our plumbing. Strangely, if we open the kitchen faucet while the dishwasher runs, there is no banging. Where do we start, and what can be causing the noise?” Holly from Alabama
