    Just moved into a new house that's about six years old having problems when opening the cold taps or flushing the toilet after a period of time. The problem only seems to happen if they've not been opened or flushed for an hour or so. If I flush in quick succession there's no problem.

    When you flush the loo in the en suite and walk out to the landing you can feel the vibration in a pipe under your feet.

    Our boiler is a combi with the big tank and small red tank set up (as you can see I'm not plumbing savvy )

    I have no idea what the problem is but it's getting really annoying and I'd appreciate your help if possible. Thanks in advance

    Replace the filling valve in your toilet cistern;)

    Could be a faulty pressure reducing valve on the incoming main too.

    Would the filling valve in the cistern create noise in the taps too?

    Sorry to keep dragging this up guys but I had a boiler leak the other day and noticed that the noise was coming from the boiler

    I've posted a video. Would like to hear your thoughts before proceeding with any work
