        I live in the Dallas/ Ft. Worth area, recently after a freeze in the area I started experiencing problems with a loud vibration in my pipes after I flush my toilet. The tank fills up ok, but once it is done filling the loud vibration occurs, any ideas? Thank you

It may be the answer All the best Colin Dunn

                Dear Sirs, I am a student at Bologna University, Italy. I am working on a research about Noise and vibrations in pipes connected at volumetric pumps. It is very difficult to me to find information about it: can You help me giving me as much information as you can (web sites, name of books, and everything else…). Thank You, goodbye, Giovanni Amoroso.
