Plumbing noise
« on: July 16, 2001, 05:29:44 PM »
My master bathroom toilet, located on the second floor of my house, shares
part of an 18 foot wall that rises from the 1st floor up
to the ceiling. Here is the problem: when the toilet is flushed,
one can hear the water whooshing down the pipes. This house is newly
constructed. Is there any way to fix this without tearing any
walls?

I have heard of low-noise toilets.  This may be cheaper than insulation of the pipe and the wall it runs through...  (as should have been done at construction- any recourse?

We have a new home and have the same problem.  Our contractor cut holes in the walls and added additional cellulose insulation, which made no difference. To me, this is a major problem.  Can anyone help??
