I'm redoing our basement (or rather doing it...). While working down
there, someone above flushed a toilet, and I was a bit dismayed as to
the volume of splashing sounds I got coming down the main drain pipe.
Lovely... The pipe is in the center of the room, and I'm building a
column around it (with an access panel in case...). Before I drywall
it, I'd like to take some measures to dampen the sound from the pipe.
Is there a simple, fast way to do this? Is there any material I can
buy for this?
On another, similar note, I have a finished wall upstairs on which the
TV is hung. It appears as though the sound is carrying through the
finished wall into the staircase, and down. Is there anything I can
spray into the wall to dampen that? Again, I'm not looking for
complete soundproofing, just to lower the decibel level a bit. In
this case though, I'd prefer not to remove the existing drywall (not
completely at least).
Thanks in advance
