Re: Loud Dripping Noise on 1st Floor when Upstairs Plumbing is in Use
Agreed, without physical evidence of a leak it's probably just water that continues to drip within the pipe after the fixtures upstairs are used. It is for this reason that cast iron is often used for transit pipes between floors, because it's mass will mute most of the noises going on within the pipe itself.
