When cold water tank in the loft is emptying,the mains supplied cold water cuts in via the float in the tank, and very loud vibrations/noises travel up the cold water/mains pipe. The noise can be stopped by running the cold tap for a while. It can also be stopped by turning off the stopcock. Any ideas appreciated.

replace washer in ballvalve or these days its easier to replace it valve complete, that will stop any vibration, its just water pressure on a worn washer.
