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

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

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