How to Soundproof a Pipe

soundproof a room header

Pipe Soundproofing

Pipes, a necessary part of a house, are kept hidden behind walls and ceilings, away from the living space. But these walls and ceilings provide little soundproofing. 

Pipe soundproofing can be achieved in two ways: wrapping the pipes with noise blocking materials and filling the cavities around the pipes with sound absorption products. Using both noise blocking and sound absorption materials can eliminate the sounds of pipes in your home.

While pipe soundproofing is recommended during construction, any exposed or accessible existing pipe can be treated. Post-construction treatment is especially common in older homes that still use cast iron pipes. Copper and PVC piping, which also create unwanted noise, can be also treated after construction.

Recommended Methods

Wrapping pipes with a dense vinyl material will block the noise and dampen the vibrations.

We recommend Quiet Wrap™ Pipe Soundproofing Wrap, which will significantly reduce noise created by pipes. This is an industrial grade barrier/foam composite manufactured with a high density sound barrier membrane and laminated with an acoustic grade polyurethane foam. With its peel-and-stick backing, installation is quick and easy.

If the pipe is encased in drywall, use a sound absorption product like Quiet Batt® Soundproofing Insulation. This dense, recycled, cotton material can be installed around the pipe in the empty space of the drywall, eliminating the sound vibrations made by the piping. Quiet Batt® Soundproofing Insulation, not only reduces sound, it also insulates.
