Decoding Strange Plumbing Noises

January 16, 2024

Weird plumbing noises are about the last thing you want to happen in your house without knowing what they are. That’s why it’s a good idea to get a reputable plumbing company like Bullseye Home Services to help you out as soon as possible so you can rest easy. Here is an explanation of some noises and what they might mean:


If you hear something rattling in your plumbing system, you may need to contact a local plumber in Lakewood Ranch, FL. This noise often comes from inside the house, but it could also happen wherever there is piping. It often means that a piece securing your pipes is starting to get loose.


Water is supposed to move through your drains smoothly. However, if your sink or shower drains are gurgling, it may indicate a clog or blockage deep in your pipes. Worse, there could be an issue with your sewer line, necessitating urgent plumbing repairs. In some cases, foul odors accompany gurgling noises from your drains as they allow gases to go back into your home.


When you notice high-pitched humming sounds whenever you use your faucet or toilet, the water pressure in your home might be too high. This is an issue you don’t want to overlook because too much water pressure can burden your plumbing system, resulting in pinhole leaks and loosened joints in your piping. Be sure to get professional plumbing services as soon as possible to set your water pressure at the right level and avoid further damage.

If you hear any plumbing sounds that are unsettling to you, don’t hesitate to contact Bullseye Home Services so we can sort it out for you. We will get to the root of the problem and prevent a potential emergency plumbing situation. Get in touch with our team today to learn more about our services or to schedule an appointment.

I had a main line blockage in my house late one evening.I called bullseye because they repiped my whole house some time back, and left a message with the answering service.Next morning first thing I got a call from the dispatch and they sent someone right out. The tech was courteous and knowledgeable and fixed the problem in under an hour. He even showed me how to unclog slow drains.I forget his name, but he was great!

I called Bullseye Plumbing this am at Whispering Sands’ referral bc of a clogged kitchen drain. Garion & assistant discovered that the problem was more than the drain. The main pipe & arteries outside the home had major rust & debris which need further attention. After hearing my options, i decided with the air/water flow pressure to flush out whatever is there. Garion was polite, neat & clean plus knowledgeable about his job. I’d use him again.I prepaid half the cost & the crew will come tomorrow to do the rest of the job to make all the drains flow easily.Carol Bures

Septic was backing up into the house. We needed help quick! Called up Bullseye. From the start it was a wonderful experience. The employee on the phone(sorry, cant remember the name) was polite. Got us right on the books. A short time later, I received a call from Mike letting me know he is on his way. Once he arrived, Mike got to work. He explained everything as he went through the process and cleared out our main pipe that was clogged with what looked like old cooking oil. He was an efficient, and honest professional.All in all. Great company, great employees.
Eileen Q.
Mark was wonderful. He arrived in less than 30 minutes and was finished the work in under 30 minutes.

We have embarked upon a huge home improvement project. Step 1 was to evaluate, repair and replace old piping. Our house was built in 1936. A lot of old caste iron pipes. The BullsEye team has made a very challenging and stressful endeavor manageable. Josh has done a great job putting together options for my wife and I to consider. I never felt like he was simply trying to sell me stuff. He was clearly focused on solving our myriad of problems. Thank you Josh. The work crews have been amazing. I want to especially acknowledge Robert and the other Josh. They have strived to build out the best solutions for us even if it meant starting over and reconfiguring to get it perfect. You guys are the best. This has been a major undertaking and they have put my wife and I at ease throughout the process. Thank you to the entire BulleEye team. We are thrilled with your work. We will most certainly recommend you to anyone who has a major plumbing project. Keep up the good work.Sherod and Bridgette Halliburton

We had michael come and service our water heater at our condo on Siesta Key Beach? He was an awesome technician and explained everything to me. Very courteous and professional!

We had some old copper pipes break which flooded our home. I called 3 different companies, not knowing much about the services in Sarasota. Bullseye Home Services responded quickly and came out immediately. The other 2 companies called me back later in the day to schedule an appointment all the while Bullseye was already hard at work. Nick came out and assessed the damage and mapped out the replumb. He was very thorough and knowledable, and answered all questions/concerns. Josh and Josh (the dream team!) came in to do the replumb and install a new water heater in 1 DAY! These 2 were very maticulius with their work and stayed late until it was done! The work they did is clean and pleasing to the eye and did I mention their mannerism? stinking polite and courteous! My water pressure and temperature is better than the original. You're in good hands when using this company and cannot recommend Bullseye enough! God Bless You!!

We own a small business on St. Armand's circle. But we are one of many businesses in our particular building. We have all been struggling with a situation that had us scratching our heads. The bullseye team, Tyler and Brendan, were amazing. They came out, figured out where the issue stemmed from, same day as our service call, and had a game plan for repairs by the end of the day. Very friendly and professional. We highly recommend this company for whatever your needs are. They will not disappoint!Thank you guys for the work you do! We appreciate you all.

Every time we've had Bullseye out, they've been on time and professional.Today's experience with Josh was no exception. He took special care to ensure each of our issues were handled properly and was also very personable. Thanks Josh!
Ron P.
After a major plumbing and waste failure, we contacted Bullseye to evaluate what had failed. They responded quickly and were able to determine that everything needed to be completely replaced. They quickly got a plan, pricing and crews in place to replace the waste lines and to re-pipe the house. Everyone we dealt with, from the office, to the crews that worked on our home, has a very high level of professionalism. We received calls and texts showing arrival times, the crews were prompt and worked quickly and efficiently. The job has been completed inside of the estimated dates and we couldn't be happier with the level of work done. Even the local building inspector commented what a great job that they did and that they didn't cut corners. We were especially happy with our lead plumber, Norm. He went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy with all the work and to make sure that any detail we needed was accommodated.
Madge M.
Austin Warner came out on Friday 4:30PM after the supply houses were closed found us a hot Water Heater to be installed the next morning by Miles. Every thing was finished by noon. Every thing was cleaned up & hauled off.
Paul D
The Office Staff was very friendly, followed up quickly. They sent their Technician Kyle out the same day to give us an estimate. He is informative and knowledgeable. His suggestions were very helpful. Kyle showed up the next day on time and performed quality work. He definitely takes pride in his work. I highly recommend this company.
Michael K.
Josh, Vinny & Nate were consummate professionals and technically astute. We had an initial assessment conducted for a clogged drain, and with a house built in 1968 having cast iron pipes, they provided us a few options that would be short or long term as well as cost estimates for both. We chose to have our drain lines jetted and the team did an exceptional job. We highly recommend Bullseye and their team of proficient Plumbers! Thank you!
Brenna H.
Norm was so professional and thorough! Great service. We are happy with our new pipes and water heater.
Deb M.
Vinny explained everything he would do if we hired him to take care of our issue. When he and a helper came the next day they did the work exactly as described. He kept me informed each step along the way. He took his shoes off in the house, he cleaned everything so I didn't even know they had been here. Not only is he so good at customer service he seems to really enjoy his job and meeting people. This company is very good at what they do, very friendly and great communicators. I highly recommend them for any of your plumbing issues and beyond! They turn a not so nice issue in to a pleasant experience. Thank you Vinny.
Sandra B.
Norm was our person from Bullseye and he was friendly, courteous and concerned that I was please and happy with the result of his work.
Debra C.
We purchased a water filter and softener. Norm was very professional and knowledgeable. He cared about making sure he didn't bring and dirt and mud into the home. When he was done he walked me through the system and explained the water flow and shut offs.
I had a really good experience with this company. The technician came to give me an estimate, and returned a couple of days later to get the job done. The work was completed in a timely and professional manner. Thank you!
Carrie J.
Nick met with us and explained the plumbing issues we were having. He was very professional and answered all our questions. We set up an appointment for 1 week later to replace our extremely old hot water heater and update the galvanized pipes to new plumbing material.Miles and Ryan arrived and observed the issues they would be tackling. They got right to work. Both were very professional and respectful. They put in a long day, got the job finished, and made sure everything was cleaned up before they left. Ryan made sure we had the number in case anything came up.They did a great job , we would highly recommend Bullseye.
Jill C.
Josh was not only on time he was kind and ensured we were comfortable with the price and product before the install. We always use Bullseye for all our plumbing needs and they have always been amazing. I cannot stress enough how all the technicians that have come into our home have done quality work and have said if we ever had a problem (we never have) to call right away for them to come fix it. This is an amazing company and we love supporting local. Thank you for your amazing service
Melissa Ann D.
They are all great! They are our plumber moving ahead. We are very happy with them and will refer them to anyone who needs service.
