When using shower basement pipes start clanging and Rattle and make a horrible noise some say it's water hammer some say I need to replace the flap in my toilet bowl any suggestions

Debbie, probably water hammer, but your pipes may not be supported/attached properly. Have a good plumber or a knowledgeable friend take a look to see if pipes hang loosely and can be attached more securely. If pipes are secure and supported properly and noise is still there a water hammer will have to be installed. Check the attached links,instruction and guides they may enable you to cure the noise from pipes on your own. Good luck.

Noisy water pipes when neighbours use water

Install air chamber to cushion sudden-stop of flowing water.
Water flow coming to sudden stop is called water hammer, and will bang pipes, but also loosen plumbing joints, causing leaks.

Air chamber has to be vertical, and about 18" long, with cap on top.
By code each Hot and Cold line at each tap will have air chamber located behind the wall. So there are two air chambers at each tap.

In your case, you can probably add air chamber to your Hot and Cold lines and solve problem for both dwellings.

Water hammer is caused because water does not compress like air.
So when long column of water suddenly stops... the whole pipe-full of water comes to sudden halt... and that water could weigh 1-1/2 pounds ... and just like a hammer head moving, the weight of water bangs the pipes to dissipate energy, causing noise.

Hello my dishwasher just makes a noise when switched on what could it be please sounds like a water problem? thank you

Normally the inlet pipes have a stailess steel mesh to block the dirt from entering your machine, when you tap water and it reached its level then the solinoide is actully closing the water for you, it is posable that that mesh is blocked and the solinoid is making that noise. Close the water supply, remove the pipes on the machine and make sure that mesh is not blocked, if it is open have a look at the fan belt, that can also lead to the noisy problem, if it is not a direct drive

Noisy water lines : When any water line is turned on, you can hear the water running through the lines anywhere in the house. This is a recent problem that started after we came back from vacation and...

this is a commom proplem and not always easy to figure out. It could just be excess air in the lines or even a kinked line will make the pipe sing. Since your say that know matter where you run the water I would start looking for a kinked pipe or even a lose or missing pipe hanger in the main line.

Noisy water heater blower

There really is no way to do this. If you put a cap you will restrict the air flow which will cause you to have problems with the water heater, same thing if you where to put screen on it. You can try enlarging the pipe to a 3 inch and see if that works. But 15 years in the trade nothing has been made to reduce the noise

Noisy pipes with hot water baseboard heat

The natural expansion and contraction of the pipes due to the hot and cold water is what makes the pipes sing. I'm not aware of a fix without repiping.

Hotpoint Superplus 7822 dishwasher

At the beginning of the cycle the dishwasher is attempting to pump out any residue water in the waste pipe and sump. It could be that the motor is sticking but you would probably also suffer from it not draining properly.
It may just be noisy pump. I have a similar model and it is also quite noisy but nothing extraordinary.
When the dishwasher is pumping out at the end of the washing cycle it may be quieter when there is water in the pump/pipes but then gets noisy as it 'pumps air'.
