How noisy will Plumbing through living room wall be?
WeÂre adding a 2nd story to our 1924 Bungalow. TheyÂre wanting to run the 2nd floor waste and water line down through a wall very near our living room. IÂm concerned about the noise when mostly when someone is taking a shower (both from the waste and water lines). My question is, should I be that concerned Â and what can we do about it? ItÂs a true 4" wide wall, so there wonÂt be much room to put insulation on all sides of the 4" waste line. WeÂre going to be putting in 5/8" sheetrock.
One option is to move it to an outside wall, but since theyÂve already started plumbing it, this has some cost implications.
Right now, the elbow they have right at the top of wall is PVC, but the straight portion of the line down through the wall is cast-iron.
