after the moan noise, when you turn on a faucet does the first bit of water come out like it is higher presure than it should be ? then calm down to normal ? sounds like your pressure regulator is bleeding thru,,but puzzled where excess water is going you have home work LOL go look at your water meter, with everything in house OFF look at the dial, you should see a small red triangle looking thing is it moving ? ANY ? if it moves ANY, water is being used record or mark with sharpie, location of triangle. get a cold drink and come back look in 30 minutes do not use any water during the test has it moved ?
Thanks for your reply. Just cked, the meter didnt move at all. I had a wild thought, if viable it may provide the cause, but not necessarily the cure. My 15 yr old daughter likes prolonged hot showers. Must be 50 + feet of pipe to the shower on the second floor, don't know... maybe a lot more. Anyway, the hot expanded water in the pipe cools after the shower valves are shut for a while. The cooler water takes up less room in the pipe, pressure may drop some, and maybe provides a place for a little extra regulated water to seep in, making the vibration in the pipe from the regulator???
