cast iron vs pvc pipes
Posted by sarahglass on December 14, 2003 at 16:58:38:
Our old pipes were all copper. In our new bath, the plumbers put all PVC pipes. They are louder than our old pipes. Now I read in a book that to reduce noise you can put cast iron pipes in the walls and pvc for the rest of the waste water. I'm wondering if this does make things quieter, and why our plumber and general contractor never suggested this. I told them many times I didn't want a lot of pipe noise.
