Why We Can Hear the Water Draining in New Pipes?

A plumber replaced some pipes under our kitchen sink. Now, we hear the water as it drains from the sink and passes through the pipes. Does anyone know what is causing this? Because it's the weekend, we cannot inquire with the plumbing company. Thanks.

Call the plumber who did the work on your kitchen sink.

Sometimes, the old pipes can have so much "gunk" buildup that it considerably muffles the sound of running & draining water.

Unless you're seeing leaks or getting air in your lines ( the water sputters or pauses before coming from the tap, or shudders or clangs when turning the tap off) you may just be getting the sound of new pipes with no residue inside.

I am hoping you've called your plumber by now and they were able to give you an answer.

The only thing I can think is that it's a different pipe 'material'.
