I seek the knowledge of Saintsreport to help diagnose my plumbing issue after failed google attempts. I am in a fairly new house, built about 10 years ago. I have a two story house and the water heater is in the attic. On the second floor I have a bathroom that has two sinks side-by-side. When the hot water is turned on high on only one of the sinks, the pipes starts banging loudly and the water doesn't flow. No problems with cold water with the problem faucet or any other faucets (hot or cold) in the house.

Anyone know what can cause this?

As a general contractor, what you have, imho, is a need to call a professional plumber.
Yes, I would like to but long story short - wife is finishing up her degree this year and is already in the process of interviewing for jobs which would be part-time until she finishes school. Because of the potential from her dropping her current full-time good paying job to switch to one that is part-time and related to her major, money may get tight. If i cant self fix the issue my solution for the time being will be to not use hot water on this faucet.

By him asking for suggestions on this forum indicates that he may be looking for a diy solution. 30 minutes to install a $15 arrester that may solve his problem would be cheaper than hiring a professional plumber.

This is assuming how has the basic skills required and he should be able to decide if it is project he could handle. If not, he could pay for a professional plumber.

I get it, but a bad connection that leaks will cost him thousands and pressure issues can't be fixed with flexible lines.

What's a failed PEX connection cost these days?
