We have all copper pipes, about 75-80PSI. Remodeled bathroom a few years ago. Since then one shower head makes a rushing noise when turned on. After being on fairly high for a minute the noise stops. If turned off, then back on the noise starts again.

Thanks,

Mike

One of the easiest ways to destroy copper tubing is excessive velocity especially on hot water.

One cannot arbitrarily put 75 -80 PSI on a system without taking the piping diameter into consideration

Considering you may have a flow restriction in the shower head besides the shower heads small openings I would be shocked not to hear a sound and possible hydraulic shocks traveling though the system when a washing machine or dishwasher cycles

So, you're saying I should reduce the water pressure? to what? We have no flow restricter in the shower nozzle, 1" pipe to the house, 3/4" feed lines, 1/2" up the walls to the fixtures.

Thanks for your help!

Mike
