Can anybody help, when i turned on the hot tap there was an almighty bang with an incredible sound like someone drilling through the walls, all the central heating pipes and boiler were vibrating. there was no spluttering from the taps but when i turned on the cold tap the noise stopped, this happens everytime i turn the hot water on, all thr radiators are fine no cold spots, this happens whether the hot water system is on or not ideas?

Changing the ball valve stopped all of this completely.
