noise from waste pipe
Posted by Charlie on March 29, 19101 at 12:26:48:
I have just installed an upstaris bathroom, and the 3" soil pipe comes down through a wall in our bedroom. When someone flushes the toilet upstairs, it sounds like Niagara Falls. Now, this wall is still open on the other side so I have time to deal with this issue. What is the best way to minimize the sound? For example, do I want to attacht he pipe firmly to a stud with clips, or does it need room to move? (It's plastic.) Should I pack it tightly with insulation? Is there anything else I can do? Thanks for any advice.
