Need quiet toilet for 2nd floor, is it out there?
Just moved into my first two-story house and I can hear my 2nd floor toilet flush right thru the walls and down on the first floor. I remodeled part of the house and had the pipes wrapped in carpet padding, also heavily insulated any spaces left in the wall and ceiling, then doubled up on the wallboard. Not much change. Maybe it's the toilet? Is there a toilet out there that might be quieter? Sounds like Niagara Falls inside my wall.
Btw: pipes are plastic, plumber didn't think it would make much difference going cast iron...I won't be using him again!
