I spent an hour running back and forth to the street gate valve and to all of the spigots and devices in the house (don't forget to run the washer so that spigot gets opened). It was a combination of an "air hammer" and really high pressure from the village (I'm at the bottom of a hill). I finally drained the air out of the lines in the correct order and the public works guy brought over a gauge to test the pressure. I get 70 pounds while most of the village gets the standard 40 pounds. I have my gate valve turned about 1/3 of the way closed to remedy the vibration that the pressure causes. Turns out the next door neighbors have been doing this for a couple of years.
