For several there has been very noticeable and somewhat disturbing noise generated from the bathroom above, mostly plumbing related. I can hear the toilet when it is flushed, usually proceeded by a loud bang then the clear sound of water, and water running in the pipes overhead when they are using the sink or shower. I can also very clearly hear these noises from both of my bedrooms. By this I mean that in both my bedrooms it sounds like I am standing in her bathroom when they are using the facilities. The pipework penetrates the concrete slab above before running through a false ceiling and into a down pipe (Common for both toilet, shower and basin) which is surrounded by tiles on chipboard in my bathroom.
I emailed the strata manager about it, however he said there was little that they could do due to the pandemic. He has since visited and listened and said that the lagging around the pipes is likely damaged. Thats the last I have heard if the matter. Before I approach him again I would like to ask Is mitigating this noise the responsibility of the OC? as I believe the pipework is common property
This has been an issue since when the roof leaked around the plumbing vent above the bathroom of the lot above damaging the surrounds of the plumbing stack and leaking into the stack in my bathroom.
The noise wakes me around 5am and the bang when the toilet is flushed can startle when I am working from home in the spare room. It would be nice to get it addressed finally.
