Q: What does it mean when your pipes make noise, for example, if you hear a noise when you flush your toilet?

A: The term is called water hammer.  The problem occurs when the pipes are not properly fastened, there is a valve that shuts off quickly which causes the water hammer which in turn cause s the pipes to move.
