  • Loud noise when using bathroom tub faucet

    Hello Folks,

    First of all, happy new year and thank you for being here to help us amateurs out.

    Home built in 97, Master bath has a jacuzzi tub and the guest bath has a normal bathtub. In the guest bath, every time the water is turned on (hot/cold) and running through the faucet, there is a loud jet-like sound, it is also very loud when you listen to it downstairs. The sound goes away magically when the water is diverted to the shower. The same sound exists in the master bath when the water is turned on in the jacuzzi. I tried running the water for a good 5-10 minutes and the sound never changes

    The best way to describe the sound is like millions of gallons trying to pass through the faucet or the pressure is too high.

    Thank you again!!

    Give a call to your local water dep't and ask what your pressure may be
    then..what brand fixture?
    Over 80 PSI Call a plumber you know or want to
    develop a relationship with.

      Jay,


      thanks for replying. the fixtures are Moen. Why would the sound go away when it's diverted to the shower head, any ideas?

      thanks

        A quick thought is your cartridge might be messed up.It changes with the water pressure..
        adds up with the shower head hence the noise loss.
        Water is moving slower through the shower vs the spout.

          Air chambers should always be installed on Moen tub and shower valves.
          If they're not on yours, you may have to install shock arrestors at the lav.
