: I replaced the ball and pipe system in the back tank of the toilet, now every time you flush a loud banging and rattling noise comes from the pipes in the basement

Steve,
The timing of the loud banging could be very telling. Problems that can occur would be things like:
Loose washers which could be at the new fill valve, or the shutoff at the wall. Perhaps the shutoff for the toilet is not open enough.
If there is air in the pipes, opening up the faucets in the home would quickly fix that.
