That's a restriction of pressure someplace. It's not a geyser either, that's known as a faucet. Check to see the shut off valves below the faucet are fully opened

SOURCE: Well-Rite WR240R makes loud noise every time water flows into it

Tank may be air bound. There is an air valve on top of tank. Take cap off and depress valve momentarily. If water comes out of valve, the bladder is torn, and new tank is needed. If no water comes out, check the pre -charge pressure of tank.
First, run water in house and take note of the on-off pressure of your pump. There should be a water pressure gauge on the water line going into the tank. Take note of the cut on pressure and cut off pressure. Most well systems typically operate at 20-40, 30-50 lbs of pressure. Next,shut off electric to pump. Drain all water from tank. Take a tire gauge and check air pressure of tank. The static or pre-charge pressure should be two lbs less than the cut-on pressure,i.e if your system operates at 30-50, then the pre-charge pressure should be at 28lbs. Adjust pressure as needed. A small air compressor is ideal to use if more pressure is needed.

SOURCE: Makes very loud noise at start up.

It sounds like the bearings are going bad on the motor. Does it make the same sound when it is running?

How do I stop the loud noise when any of the hot taps are used?

I take it your water pressure is high. If so, then you need to have this pressure reducer installed because the water valves in the machine open and shut instantly, which means it lets too much water at once and when the valve closes or opens it makes a vibrating noise. See if you can check how fast the water is flowing at the tap first. Most washing machines make some noise one way or another, be it from tub spinning to rattling and clanking or water flowing in the tub, etc. From your description, sounds like you have a high pressure pipelines in your house, a reducer is necessary. Alternatively, try and turn down the mains tap at the front of your house, where the meter is, so that less water pressure rushes inside the house pipelines. I did that and it's a little quieter.

Water changes to hot while showering

it can be that your geyser is not sending enough cold water to the pipes of your shower so you should check the sensitivity of your tap/valve. it happens sometimes that the tap turns as the water comes into contact with it. it can also be that cold water is used by someone else that also uses your geyser's water

Loud noises

did you size the gas line properly? sometimes if the gas pipe isn't sized properly it will cause some pretty loud wistling noises. also if you have something in the fan like bugs or lots of dust it will cause alot of problems with noises

Noise coming from engine

are you getting oil pressure when the car is warm have you changed the oil recently or is it overdue if you have an oil pressure gauge on your dash check to make sure you are getting propper oil pressure as this is what it sounds like you are losing oil pressure and your valves are tapping.

Mixer tap makes a noise like a fog horn when cold water turned on

Usually happens when the stops and not ballanced(hot and cold pressures going to the faucet). Try ajusting the stops; open more on the hot or close more on the cold.

Thundering noise coming from hot taps,bath,sink taps...

Sounds to me like you need to have a water hammer device installed into your plumbing, I have only run across this just once before, the noise is very loud and very bothersome, you will need to contact a plumber and have him install a water hammer device into your system, also vibration dampers would probably help as well, if your water lines are running through floor joists and touching them, hope that helps
