ABS Drainage Pipes

Aside from replacing with cast iron...

What are some solutions for reducing the noise from ABS plumbing, before I seal up the wall?

First you want to try and decouple the pipe from the structure, this will break the connection leading right to the drywall..soundproofing will not work as well if you have these hard connections prior to soundproofing material.
for the material you can use our standard soundproofing pipe insulation which is easy to install, if you have the room for 1" wall thickness.

or with a little extra work, you can use our Mass loaded vinyl with 1/4" closed cell foam, and wrap the pipe w/overlap, glue and tape closed. (best reduction).

Cool, thanks for the suggestions :)  My walls aren't sealed and I did decouple the pipe from any part of the wall, so that's good.

Are either of these mold resistant?  Both drains are along outside basement walls :S
