If you guessed TOILET FLUSHING, you were correct. That’s why cast iron soil pipe is called The Quiet Pipe®.
According to a USA Today poll, toilet flushing bothers guests twice as much as construction & repair work, coughing or snoring. Cast iron soil pipe is 10 times more effective in sound attenuation than PVC – that’s why cast iron is THE choice where noisy pipes might be an issue, including hotels, hospitals, high-rise buildings, schools and condominiums.
Use The Quiet Pipe® in Commercial Buildings
In multi-unit buildings the problem of noise is particularly acute. The use of neoprene gaskets and cast iron soil pipe reduces noise and vibration to an absolute minimum. Because of the density and wall thickness of the pipe, sound is muffled rather than transmitted or amplified. Neoprene gaskets separate the lengths of pipe and the units of fittings so that they suppress any contact-related sound. Minimize objectionable plumbing noises by specifying cast iron soil pipe. The Quiet Pipe® reigns over others especially for commercial buildings.
