    (Use volume please)

    Is your house joined to another. Are any neighbours hearing the same noise.

    Sounds like water hammer from a toilet or tap turning off quickly, a shock arrestor might fix it

    It could be one of your neighbours or even in the water main, try a shock arrestor after your stop tap if that doesn't work contact your water supplier

    Is a flat located at 1st floor it doesn't have any tanks in the attic and below neighbour says he can here it some time from above, in my flat I can here it often all day or night long and no taps are used or toilet that's really frustrating... :(

    Frustrating I bet !!!
    Unfortunately copper pipes will transmit sounds so it could be coming from anywhere.
    Some flats I work in have a seperate room having all the water meters . Sometimes where the electric meters are too .

    Florin Cristian New Member noticed that when my neighbour is using his water taps/toilet the sound is starting and I'm thinking even the neighbour next to me 1st floor when he uses water the sound is present even if I went to bellow neighbour and run the tap and toilet he has no sound inside his house but in mine youse think a shock arrestor ( like Jones82 said )fitted in my place will stop this madness ?

    Could be the jumper in your stop tap. Try closing it for a few hours and see if you hear the noise.

    My flat being in a block of 4 I've noticed when the neighbours are using their water I get the sound and definitely its a shared system do youse think I can do something on my side to stop the sound ?..
