but settle out after water gets flowing smoothly. is it the pipes in the attic or wall that are rattling? the pipes usually need to be staked down to the joist ..or studs when they are installed and routed to keep them stationary and not allow them to shake under the influence of the transient water flow. But it could also be the water hammer effect the Scott mentioned too...that the air dampers he mentioned can prevent when shutting water off. give us mor info and hope this helps. LJ
