    Default pipe vibration

    After flushing the toilet and a several second delay, the pipes begin to vibrate. It begins as a low noise and get louder. This does not happen every time and lasts between 5-10 seconds. Running the sink or flushing again stops the vibrations. This began happening just a week ago. Any possible suggestions on the cause of the vibration?

    Probably a fluttering washer in the toilet's ball cock. Not hard to fix.

    I think its time to change the complete pipe that is responsible for supplying water in toilet flush. You can get this proper temporarily but this requires a complete replacement..

    I have seen this before and it turned out to be the pressure reducing valve to the house.
