Customer Question

after i run the shower in the morning, I hear a humming or high pitched sound (.seemingly in the walls), lasting for a minute or two ..then it goes away., almost like you hear sometimes when you turn on the water hose. Any idea as to what it may be?

Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. Please give me a few minutes to look up the specs for your unit. I’ll be back as soon as I have the info I need.

It could be from the backflow preventer on the outside faucet. If you leave the hose connected try disconnecting it and see if the noise goes away.
