Or do like my wife told me to do. Our pipes in the bathroom sink have been vibrating for months now. We researched everything possible. She said " try turning up the valve a little". Guess what? it worked. Do the 'KISS' method.(Keep It Simple Stupid)

A common cause of pipe noise in a home is when the pipes vibrate or rattle inside the walls. When the home was built, the plumber is supposed to install strapping around the pipe where it enters the studs in the wall or travels through the floor to prevent this. If this strapping was not secured and has fallen off (or never there to begin with) this will cause the pipe to rattle or vibrate…
If you have adequate flow from the other sinks in the house then either one of the items mentioned below should help. The first thing to look at is the aerator.

Sometimes, when the pressure is too high, it can cause what is called water hammer. Water hammer is…
