For the past few months, we have had rumbling pipes in our 1983 built townhome. It sounds like a haunted house. This occurs no matter where we use water in the house. (kitchen sink, bathroom toilet, shower, etc...)
What have we done so far?
We've had a friendly neighbor who knows plumbing quite well add in an air release pipe at the highest point in the house to allow any trapped air to cushion there. It stopped for a few hours, but then it returned almost worse than before.
We tried to trace where in the basement the sounds are occuring, but it changes everytime it rumbles.
We turned and turned back every valve we can find.
On the good side, the house has not collapsed, exploded, or flooded so I don't think it's an emergency, but it's annoying and worrisome.
Thanks in advance for any help!
