How to and Why? Fixing Water Hammer on a Faucet.
I would say the faucet is not going to last very long, by that I mean the cartridge is probably not working properly. And will fail soon by by just completely failing to work.
So you may be looking at replacing the FAUCET SOON, and the water supply lines because these have a rubber at the end and usually become smashed and in need of replacement and also check the water stops underneath the sink to see if they still are working.
Also check the Water Pressure coming in to your house.
Because this may be the thing that Possibly caused it.
Water Hammer is probably the problem. Which is exactly what you read into the words. When water is traveling under high pressure and suddenly stops (You turn off the faucet). It will cause a vibration or motion of the pipe.
When the Water Pressure is to HIGH this may cause excessive wear and tear on your “FAUCET”, toilet valve, shower valve or even may cause a leak to occur because of the Pressure (You ever here about floods happening in the home?)
Anyways CHECK your Water Pressure by purchasing a water Pressure test gauge(Costs about $10.00 at the Home Depot).
You screw the test gauge onto the hose bibb, try to have counter clock wise pressure. If you decide to do this so as to hold the pipe from twisting on the Hose Bibb. obviously the Test has to be after the pressure regulator.
Or type into the Google search box Plumber Near Me. So a Professional Checks out the Water Pressure.
If your water pressure is around 65 lbs then it should be okay, if it's more then you may need a new pressure regulator.
I usually think that if the pressure is over say 80lbs then I would definitely. Think about installing a pressure regulator. When the Water Pressure is to high it can cause a major leak or worse.
Another thing that it could be is that (Water Hammer) the pipe in the walls are not strapped or secured properly. All you would have to do is place a strap if it's accessible underneath the house on the piping or open up the wall and strap the piping.
The other option would be to put a air chamber or a water Mechanical Resistor Arrestors.
I would start with checking the water pressure.
