Question noisy pipes

Hi All,
I live in an old mobile home and have experienced episodes of noisy pipes a couple of times in the past couple of years. The problem has gone away after a few days in both cases and the noise would only last for a few seconds at a time.
Now, however, it won't stop. My wife woke up at 4 am because it was so loud and the only way to make it stop was to keep the water running..........
Naturally, this is not the way we'd like to use to make the noise stop.

Can anyone help me with this?

My wife and I both would really appreciate it :-)

Thanks in advance,

Ray

Cool

I suspect what you're hearing is due to a faulty toilet tank water inlet valve.
Replace it with a Fluidmaster 400A float-cup type (about $5-$7 bucks), and just follow the easy directions that come with it for installation. Hopefully, this will solve your problem.
Good Luck!
Mike
