    Default Freaking out, noise outside??

    There's a noise, in the wall or floor, every 10-20min. Like a bang-bang. My brother thinks pipes, so we've turned the main off buts it's still there. I can't sleep. It's consistent, so not an animal or person.
    The hot water system is also on that side.
    I can't sleep!!
    Any ideas?

    When I was a kid our hot water system used to go 'bang bang'....I have no idea how to stop it though sorry. Maybe turn it off for now?

    Was it consistent? It just won't stop, the water is off (mains) and it's making noise every 10-20min.
    I have no idea what else it could be.

    It's could also be air in the pipes....you've turned the mains off so now run the tap until it's empty. Do the same with the hot water. I have no idea if it'd work....just a thought

    Is it windy at the moment could it be something being blown?

    Not windy.
    Dh is asleep, not worried.
    I'm a wreck, waiting for something to burst or blow up. I'm a worrier.

    I'm sure it's fine, I had banging of pipes as a child and nothing burst try and sleep if something happened in sure you'll know about it quickly and any damage would be the same as if you're awake.
