Bathroom plumbing
« on: April 01, 2001, 07:14:45 PM »
One of our customers has a case similar to the one mentioned earlier dealing whith noise from a shower.  It is so loud that it is difficult to hear the TV in the adjoining living room.  The difference is that there is no remodeling planned since it is a new home.  we can access the top of the partition from up in the attic.  Is there any product that can be blown, poured or sprayed into the wall cavity to dampen the noise without opening up the walls?

Sorry to say you won't have much sucess with a blow-in insulation, the problem might even get worse.  You need to remove the shower and insulate the walls with "Wonderboard" placed inside the studding against the opposite wall, caulk well and cover with our acoustical foam and line the shower walls facing the foam with more foam, creating a dead air space.
