ACOUSTICAL PROPERTIES: Airborne sound transmission class/STC 27 per ASTM C423.

Quieting Noisy Waste Lines

I want to finish part of my basement, but my main waste line runs along one of the walls and it’s very noisy when water goes gurgling through the pipe. How can I reduce the noise?
Noisy waste lines are a more common problem now that most main waste lines are plastic (PVC) rather than cast iron. The fastest and most reliable (but not necessarily the least expensive) solution is to install a heavy vinyl barrier with a foam backing called “noise barrier with decoupler”.

Acoustical Transmission Loss properties are for a single layer of barrier material. Actual STC of material applied to piping or other structures will vary in performance.
ductwork, PVC Acoustical Pipe lagging dramatically reduces the amount of noise that transmits through the walls of ductwork, PVC and cast iron pipes. When a decoupler layer is added sound transmission is improved.
