    "Air locks can be the coarse in pipework that coarse the banging. Or sometimes the wrong ball valve has been fitted to the tank ,and last but not least ,lever taps are often the coarse as they tend to not shut of completely, and as water trickles out it causes vibration .high pressure taps on low pressure water ."

    "When it starts banging try running your kitchen cold tap and if the banging stops you need an equilibrium ball valve in the tank in the loft, if this is not the answer it could also be your heating hi-end stat is knackered and your boiler is overheating"
