Worse thing was, no one was even here when it began, which meant "How do we isolate this issue? How do we troubleshoot it?"
Tony came home from work and was on the job! He was upstairs in each bathroom (we have 8 bathrooms y'all!), and finally determined it must be the Sierra Suite toilet, so raced off to Lowe's.
The Lowe's solution did not solve the problem.
As all good moves in innkeeping, the first solution is never the right one. The simplest solution, is also never the right one. So Tony put on his thinking cap and went down and removed the filter in basement, which did release sediment. The town had recently (it may have been yesterday) flushed the water mains. Somehow we knew this had to be connected, since, again, in 8 years we have never encountered this problem.
The filter removal solution did not solve the problem.

He finally came down the ladder with his back scraped up and red and asked "Where is the advil?" Throughout the night the noise was gone, we were pleased. We awoke early to prepare coffee and breakfast and there it was, again...oi veigh!
The fastening of the pipes solution did not solve the problem.
So tonight, as soon as possible Tony will be back troubleshooting this problem, again. I am sure while he is at work, probably focusing more on this noise than the routers and backbone engineering that is his daytime job in I.T. he will come up with the answer!
