Title of Question:

Moaning Pipes


Name: Shannon Green  City:

Question: Our house has two full bathrooms. In the master bath, whenever you turn on the shower head the pipes moan and groan. When the bath faucet is on there is no noise. The moaning only happens when the shower is on. What is the cause for this and how do we fix it?

Answer: It is vibration in the pipes, you can either reduce or increase the water pressure very very slightly.
