pipes moaning/singing/vibrating

I hope someone will help me with this.
On Feb 2nd my plumbing began to moan/sing/vibrate when I use a water source in my home. It happens when I use any water source ~ a faucet, toilet or applience (dshwasher or laundry maching) AS soon as I turn off the water the moaning begins and lasts for about 5 seconds and fades off to quiet again.
The moaning goes away if I turn on a faucet and let it trickle a bit but comes back as soon as I turn off the spicket.
From the beginning I thought it was air in the lines so I turned on all the water sources in my home and let them run for about 5 minutes. The problem still remains.
I hope someone can explain what is causing this and help me fix it. I'm puzzled

Thank you for your time

First, check your toilet tank water inlet valves. If it is one of those, change the valve. Use a Fluidmaster 400A float-cup type (about $5-$7 bucks). Just follow the directions that come with it. Easy.
If it isn't a toilet tank assembly, if you're on public water, you may have a pressure reducing valve that needs adjusting, repair or replacement. This type of problem can also be caused by excessive water pressure in your home.
Good luck!
