Squealing Pipes
Posted by Donna the non-plumber on November 04, 1999 at 13:29:24:
On an irregular basis, when a tap is used, a high pitched squealing, whining type of noise is heard throughout
the house. Sometimes it goes away when you quickly run a tap (either hot or cold) and then shut it off,
but not always. It seems to be getting worse. The only "cure" for it right now is to flush the toilet, but
this could get expensive if we have to keep flushing to stop the whining. It has progressively gotten worse
over the past two months and it happens at least once per day. There doesn't seem to be a particular
faucet that starts it off, and sometimes it just does it all by itself.

Any suggestions on where to start??
