When the toilet is flushed or a cold water tap is turned on a rumble can be heard for approximately ten seconds. My pipes are copper, any idea what my problem may be and a solution?

Cool

You may have a cold water supply line that is loosely supported and vibrating against wood whenever water flows through it.
Check the pipes in your basement or crawlspace to see if you can detect the rumble when someone turns on the cold water, and secure the pipe better.
It could be caused by something else, such as the water inlet valve of the toilet, but check that first.
Good Luck!
Mike
