One of the 2 showers of my house makes loud noises which increase or decrease with the amount of water let through.

I was told that the reason is air in the pipes.

How can I remove that air ?

Any air in the pipes is quickly cleared. And it is very rare to get air in the pipes in the first place. In general the only way that air gets in is when the system is shut off and opened for repairs.

Noise that varies with the flow of water is caused by something that is loose in the system and can move back and forth with the water.

In most cases it is caused by a loose washer in the faucet.

But I have seen cases where the washer scew broke off and fell down the pipe. And debre can build up and flake off and get into the shower head.
