It is water hammer caused by you turning the new faucet off too quickly. A water hammer arrestor installed on the two water lines should help, or just turn the faucet off slower.

: I just installed a new Moen faucet in my bathroom; all the same pipes, etc., just a new faucet. Suddenly, whenever I turn off either cold or hot, there is a single clang or thud coming from the pipes.
: It isn't loud, and the pipes don't visibly vibrate, but it wasn't there with the old faucet, and I'm wondering what it is, whether it's harmful, and how I can rid myself of it!

: Many thanks,
