Why does my sump pump make a loud banging noise?

As you suggest, the vibration of the valve pump itself can be transferred through the entire length of the drain pipe during its operation. When the pump comes out, there may be a sudden blow noise as the pressure within the pipe falls suddenly and rubs or hits the surrounding wall or ceiling.
