where you in the pool???:d
Rick, why not just drill a 1" hole for 1/2" horizontal runs? Wouldn't this accomplish the same thing faster?
this is from a 4 story building built in 1991 wood framed. owner complaining of excessive noise when other units above or below would run their shower.
the building actually shrunk so much to shear and bend the piping. i was able to cut it back and restore the proper alignment.
notice that the line had been repaired 2 times already due to leaks.
i cut out the pipe on the 2nd. floor unit and replaced with propress. also installed acoustoclamps to isolate the pipe from the framing as recommended by the acoustical engineer they brought in to consult about the noise. for $25,000 a month, i guess he deserves to sleep without being awoke to the sound of a shower in the stack
i was able to attach to the risers in the first floor unit. the third floor was just remodeled and they were not going to let me open it up.
the engineer will be taking sound readings tomorrow. so far without drywall or insulation, it sounds much better.
