Plumbing acoustic isolators for noise
We're remodeling our house, and will have plumbing running down through 1st floor walls.
I'm trying to reduce noise from the pipes (water and waste). I had an acoustics engineer recommend to me to try and "isolate" the pipes (especially the water) from the studs used to hold them.
He recommended using an acoustical through-stud isolator which uses a soft material to dampen any movement in the pipe. He mentioned 2 (one by HoldRite, the other by Acousto-plumb). I was trying to see if anyone has any experience with these.
1) Is one of them better than the other?
2) Anything to watch out for or be aware of?
