Toilet flush followed by water hammer

Q.    Following replacement of toilet shut-off valves and some other plumbing work, we now have a loud water hammer when the toilet abruptly shuts off when filled. This will also happen if we shut a faucet off quickly. The hammer is in the basement. What do we need to do to correct this problem.

A.    Have a plumber install a water hammer arrester.
