PVC waste pipes from a second floor bathroom cause a great deal of noise in common walls on the first floor.  Is there an effective way to quite these pipes?

Ken,
Yes there are ways to treat PVC pipes with a product called closed cell foam mat. This mat would be adhered to the PVC pipes with contact cement, or you casn even use duct tape. You would wrap the pipes with the foam mat, and perhaps double up on the foam at elbows and bends where the noise of draining water would likely be the loudest.
This would  entail your opening up the walls, but if the noises are that annoying, then it will be well worth the effort. There are also cost effect methods for soundproofing the walls and ceilings as well. Please give us a call if you need further assistance or to order the closed cell foam.
Thanks Ken.
