after flushing the loo the pipes upstairs howl/whine for a few minutes after but can be quitened somewhat if the upstairs tap is turned on, is this a high-pitched 'water hammer' effect? If so how to fix? Cheers

or strip it down, clean off scale and apply a bit of silicone grease.

Thats the british way Kev, "make do and mend"! :LOL:

Thanks both.
Would this be the cold-water valve in the loft or the one in the loo cistern?
Cheers
