: The pipes start to vibrate so violently that it almost sounds like an airplane is landing. Any thought on what is going on. The line is going to my new shower, I have an on/off value that was put on a week ago, tried the line for the first time last night. Help and suggestions please. Thanks

If you can isolate which fixture is causing the banging noise, (the new shower?), there could be a loose part inside the faucet. This problem is common on older style compression type faucets, a washer will become loose and cause severe banging sounds when the faucet is turned on which could reverberate through the water lines, especially if you have water lines that are not secured properly.
