      Is there a way to insulate the PVC drain from a washing machine? The laundry room is in the center of the house and the drain noise is horrible.

      Open the wall where the drain is and insulate the walls surrounding the pipes.

      In some elegant homes, they are resorting to cast-iron stacks to dampen the sound of water travelling down the pipes.

      It seems like a good idea. Can’t knock cast-iron though, some of that piping will still be in use long after I’m gone.
