Bad Vibrations Coming From Header Tank Pipes

Postby biffta » Sun Nov 06, 2016 9:06 pm

In a nutshell there is a very loud vibration noise coming from one of the header tank pipes (exiting the tank). The pipe is physically shaking and I can feel it in my hand.

From what I have read I thought it might be water hammer, however yesterday it went on non-stop for over 15 minutes - so not so sure.

I realise it is going to be very hard to diagnose but I have uploaded a video which hopefully somebody might be able to have some ideas on...

Many thanks!
