Turn the faucet to the closed position. Turn off the water to the faucet. Remove the handle. The screw that holds it on may be under a plastic cover. Unscrew the large nut. Remove the cartridge. Put the new cartridge in the closed position. Look at the old cartridge and be sure the new one matches the old one. Insert the cartridge. Replace the nut and tighten. Replace the handle. Turn on the water.

SOURCE: water keeps running even when turned of to the house

No problem on this one. Turn of the valve to the toliet just above the floor next to or behind the toilet. Go turn on a outside faucet. Is there still pressure? Wait a minute if it seems like there is still pressure to let the line pressure go down, what this is just water in the line left over. If the water stops on the outside faucet then the water is off. If you do not have a outside faucet then use a tub or a sink faucet. (if it does not stop then see part 2)....Keeping the toilet valve off remove the supply line from the toilet where it connects. This sould be the larger end. Is it is a flex line this should make it easyer. If it is a hard line like copper tubing, stop and go to the hardware store and a buy a flex supply line. This will make your job a lot easyer. After you remove the part of the line that connects to the bottom of the toilet then find a bucket place the end of the line you removed from the toilet into the bucket ( you may have to place the bucket at an angel to do this. Now turn the water valve at the wall for the toiel back on and drain the line. You may have to empty the bucket a few time but the line sould drain out.

( Part 2) If the water to the house is still on you need to go to the water meter and turn of the curb stop, this is going to be the valve inside the meter box ( if you do not have a well) and are on public water. You will need a cresent wrench, sometimes these valves can be hard to turn so you may have to use a little force. If you are on a well the you need to find the valve in you well house and turn it off. If you need more help or this did not solve this problem the repost and I will check back in a little while.

Some taps are designed to release excess pressure but it could just be a dodgy tap washer that leaks when the pressure of hot water in pipe work builds. Change the tap washer in your tap, see if it fixes it, if not it's just the design.

When hot water is turned on the pipes make this vibrating sound. i have two sinks in my bathroom. When I turn the hot water on on sink 2 the pipes vibrate. Sink 1 is fine.

There is a loose washer in the faucet...this flaps as the water goes through it and makes the vibration...
You either need to replace the faucet or the cartridge (washer) in the faucet that valves the water...
This will stop that vibration and hammering sound

Very loww water pressure when taking a shower, I've changed the shower head,but, water pressure continues to be low. I've got moderate water pressure in the face bowl in the bathroom and good to moderate...

It could be debris in the cartridge at the tap itself. Whther 2 cartidges or 1 , it wouldn't be uncommon for those to clog up as well, and it really doesn't take much to cause a decrease in flow. Turn water off to tap(s) and remove handles, then cartridges in behind with proper socket or wrench and inspect for debris inside hole cartridge came out of, as well as the cartridge.

No cold water from bathroom tap

Sounds like you need to replace your shower valve, especially if this is the only fixture in the house being affected. You could try to replace the cold water cartridge first. Hope this helps
