Whenever someone turns on water (showers, faucets and toilets) on the third floor of my ten year old house, we hear banging sound from inside the walls and between floors. We replaced the leaky fill valve in one of the two toilets on the 3rd floor with Fluidmaster. Now when we flush the toilets, we do not hear the banging any more. But the problem persists with the faucets and showers. Any suggestions on where we should look next? Thanks.

The easy way around this would be to lower the water pressure to the faucets causing the problem.The other solution is to install anti-hammer chambers in the plumbing.Try slight adjustments to your main water valve to see if it reduces the noise and if you could tolerate a lower water pressure.
