    A question for any plumbers out there...or do i have a ghost?

    ok so me and my two kids were just sat down having our tea when a kitchen tap just turned it'self on full all by itself. a couple of weeks ago my bathroom tap did the same thing.
    ok plumbers,is it possible for a tap to do this? it's starting to freak me out a bit!
    starting to think i have ghosts because sometimes when i'm alone in the house in the bathroom, the bathroon door will rattle all by itself too! eek!

    no plumbers out there?!!! i need to be reassured!!! gettin slightly freeked out!

    I'm a plumber, probably the cat

    Depends on the tap valve, you can get a quick turn valve with that will turn itself on if the water pressure is high enough.

    oh dear, you really do have a ghost I think

    this happened to us many years ago, along with a really bad smell

    we had to move house,
    sorry

    am not making this up to have a laugh btw, it really wasn't nice at the time

    if this happened would it turn it'self on so fast as you could hear it from another room or upstairs?

    my house has a really lovely atmosphere to it so i doubt it would make me move. when i was house hunting before i moved in i walked in n just knew it was the right house (sorry if that sounds odd)
    about 10 years ago i lived in a really old house and one night i heard a voice in my ear say "good night" when i was in bed dropping off to sleep. it really freaked me out and after things started falling off the kitchen worktops by themselves i moved.
    but this house is different, the taps thing is wierd , the doors rattlling is too but it still feels lovely

    It's possible, however the water pressure would have to be very high:thinking:

    just looks really dusty

    and you know Most Haunted is a load of crock right?

    I work on a 1941 world war base, I've been working nights 7yrs and not once have I seen anything, well there was one time but I'm sure there is an explanation for it.

    Do you ever watch "A Haunting"? its on discovery and DMX, looks like an orb but could be a reflection off something??????
    Hope things dont get worse, people can be haunted too, not just houses

    i would of said dust myself if it wasn't for the really bright moving object in it

    An orb is just your digital camera having a "moment"

    Its not a spook, poltergeist or somet weird its just electronics.

    its not houses that are haunted
    its the person
    its a orb on the pic ,someone in the family that has died maybe:)

    That kept happening to me in my last house, never worked out what it was but only stayed there for a few months. The bath taps would turn themselves on full during the night and it would wake me.

    Lol obviously but I noticed mine always did it within a couple of hours of me having a bath. Just keep an eye on when the taps are used and when it happens.

    That said, ghosts aren't bad you know, just don't be scared and stay rational

    the first time it was in the bathroom but tonight it was in the kitchen so i dunno, the taps can't both be faulty can they?
    yeah i'm not too bad tbh, like i said in an earlier post, my house always feels really lovely so i'm not to bothered at the mo, it's just really strange!
