    Noise from water running through lines in walls

    You might get a look inside the wall with a small scope. I know these are available online to interface with a cell phone or Harbor Freight has a fairly cheap self-contained unit. As you indicate, it would be important not to seal off valves or pipe connections. Most of the noise reduction...

    Noise from water running through lines in walls

    I would drill small holes and fill the wall cavity with expanding foam. Don't over do it though or I think the drywall may bow or break. I'd start with maybe half a can at the wall mid point above the water supply valves. Don't drill too deeply and risk damaging the lines. I believe this rigid...

    Update: I only see one pipe connected at the base which is teed off of the main water supply line. So maybe this is a storage tank or reservoir?

    What is this? (Might need input from an old timer on this)

    I am trying to figure out what this fixture/appliance in in the basement of a house over 50 years old in the Kansas City area. It's about 3 feet tall and maybe 18 inches in diameter and seems to be a cast iron or steel tank. It has no power source, either gas or electric. It's fed by a main...
