I am looking into sealing some plumbing edges for noise isolation. The plumbing goes between two levels. The levels are separated by some amount of concrete. I don't know the depth, but it is considerate.

What materials would be ideal for this? I had in mind caulking the edges of the pipes where they go through the concrete, but maybe my first idea is incorrect.



In many locales, fire protection regulations require that all holes between levels be sealed to prevent easy spread of flames. This is most often done with a fire retardant foam spray.

This should also reduce noise transmission between levels. Two for the price of one!
