Welcome Chuck:
It looks like your shower valve may need servicing. The knocking from the water heater is normally because of sediment in the bottom of it and the water boils/bubbles up through that sediment. It may be time for a new water heater.

yes i agree... and also maybe the pressure of the water cause the vibrations. but you should check the heater and replace it
