Machine gun noise in water pipes

Posted by Barrie on December 28th, 2002 10:38 AM

A rapid fire machine gun noise occurs in the water lines of my house when water is flowing. This happens with both hot & cold water and with various faucets, toilets, etc., all over the house, & when the clothes washer valves open. It doesn't happen every time a valve is opened, but perhaps 60 to 80 percent of the time. It isn't water hammer, but what is it? Any help would be appreciated.
