Our shower has a problem...It's very loud! When water hits the correct temperature and flow the shower immediately starts shrieking like a banshee.
It seems to be related to the flow because we can turn down the flow rate but keep the same temperature. This causes the shrieking to stop but it also gives us a wimpy little shower. If we turn on the shower but make it fast and cold then there is no shrieking either.
Another piece of data is that the shower has two separate physical heads on opposite sides of the shower and 1. only one of the heads makes this sound, and 2. the shrieking doesn't depend on whether both heads are running or only one head is running. The heads seem to be fed by separate pipes.
Has anyone had a problem with an old shower making noise like this? We're not sure whether the problem is the pipes or the shower head.
Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated...
