dont use the tub or shower until you have an electrician check it out. dont know why its doing it but do know that water & electric dont go together. repeat dont use it until its checked out by a qualified electrician!!!!!!!!! My suggestion is that perhaps you are developing a static charge when you walk on your carpet and are releasing it when you touch your faucet. If this is not the case perhaps you have a slight voltage leak to your Plumbing combined with a faulty ground and a damp floor which is allowing your body to close the the circuit. I believe the static theory is the problem though. The composition of your foot wear when sliding on the carpet could very well develop this charge. Hope this has helped! Answer one is difinitely correct, while answer two COULD be correct, BUT if some electrical system fault is the cause, it could be fatal. I find it very unsuual in that IF static electricity were the cause, then the recurrence would be very sporadic depending on variations in temperature and HUMIDITY. If, as your question states, this happens EVERY TIME you touch the faucet handle[s], then the the cause IS NOT due to static electricity. Prudence and safety demand that a QUALIFIED AND LICENSED ELECRICIAN troubleshoot, test, and analyze the plumbing and electrical system to determine the cause.

Sometimes a leaky or broken bath faucet is too difficult to handle on your own and you must leave it to an expert.

Your water pipes in your bathtub make a howling noise. When you open the sink faucet it stops or if you wait long enough it stops on its own. How do you solve this problem?

Could be the washer vibrating in the bath faucet/mixer. Over time, washers can degrade and become floppy or develop a rough surface. High pressure water over the surface can act like air past a clarinet reed. Opening the sink faucet takes the water feed pressure off the bath faucet, stopping the vibration.

I have to run the water in the kitchen for long time to get it hot but the bath water gets hot fast its further away from the hot water tank than the kitchen?

The volume of water that comes out of the tub faucet is much greater than the volume of water that comes out of the kitchen faucet. Let's say that the bathroom is twice as far from the water heater than the kitchen, so twice as much water has to be run to get the hot water. If the tub faucet allows more than twice as much water to pass through, then it will get there faster.
