You are describing high water pressure to a tee, and when nightfall arrives, less people are using thier water in the area, which in turn creates a higher water pressure from lack of use.

You need a PRV, a device made to reduce water pressure to a safe range around 60 pounds of pressure.

Once you install one of these, you will have less problems than what you are dealing with currently.

PRV= Pressure Reducing Valve

Have your water checked for pressure, call the city water municipality to get the average pressure in your neighborhood.

Most fire hydrants are color coded; Yellow fire hydrants with Black Tops are high pressure zones.
