rattling pipes

I just installed a new outside water faucet. Every time I turn on the water the pipes rattle and make a terrible noise. I know the noise/ rattle is coming close to where I connected the faucet and makes the pipes above it rattle. Just asking for any suggestions on how to stop this. Thanks

Re: rattling pipes

most likely cause is a loose washer in either the new valve or the shut off to this valve

The new faucet is 10 inches (froast free) long and goes though a block wall and then makes a 90 degrees turn up about 18 to 24 inches to the main line in the garage. I figure it has something to do with the connection but don't know for sure. Should I try bracing the pipe that goes up to the main line? Thanks

Re: rattling pipes

make sure your pipes are straped properly..
