noise when turn on the switch
Whenever I turn on the water supply switch at the garage to clean car/floor etc.. I heard quite a loud noise at the basement near the pipes. Is this a serious or not to worry scenario... is there a way to fix this... I don't hear somthing like that in all other switches in the house..

Thank You

Faucet or switch?

forgive my English, I mean Faucet...

Is this a single handle faucet or does it have seperate hot and cold sides?

just cold water, those old fashion style, where you turn clock wise or counter clock wise...

Check the washer on the bottom of the stem, it could be loose, causing this problem.
