The hot water line that runs from our basement to the second floor bedroom has devevoloped a severe banging (water hammer) when the hot water is turned on with low flow. There is no problem if the valve is positiond for mediun or high flow. This problem started at a sink and has extended to the shower. Help?

Check for loose washers on the bottom of the stems, if loose the will cause banging in the pipes.
