Check if the noise has stopped or not; if it has you have achieved your goal, if not, call Orange County plumber of find a local plumber to take a look at the problem.

Get Rid of the Air

Check for air stuck in the pipes and chambers. If there is air stuck within the chamber, turn the main water supply off and open every faucet in and around your house, including your backyard. This should get rid of any air stuck in the pipes. You can then turn the water supply back on, but if the problem does not go away find a plumber or for emergencies, contact a 24 hour plumber to help you.

Diagnose

Do a diagnosis of the noise and where it is coming from. Once you have figured it out purchase a water pressure gauge and check the pressure of the faucet. If the pressure is over 80 psi, urgently call a 24 hour plumber to assist you. Meanwhile, you can apply cushions and tighten clamps to stop the noisy pipes from creating more noise.
