    What makes pipes whistle. In the morning only in the down stairs bathroom when you turn the shower on the pipe make a whistling noise it builds to a crescendo and stops. And is there any way to fix. the problem

    Sometimes, it's a washer that vibrates.

    Many possible reasons, many peculiar to your system, so someone would have to be there and test to determine where the noise is originating, not necessarily where you hear it.
