i am 28 years old. i have been in the plumbing industry for about 7 years or so. i started off as a helper and have worked my way up the latter. First in Alabama where the plumbing codes were minimal and then in massachusetts where i got most of my experience with boillers and radiant heat as well as rough in installation for custom homes. Now i am a plumber for mostly residential service here in southern california. I enjoy my work as a plumber and the plus about residential service is all the different jobs i get to do. no two days are ever the same.

now that i have introduced myself can anyone help me with the humming water line problem one of my customers have?

thank you

Thank you for the intro. I made the correction to your age for you. I can not help with that problem, but there are some who may. Give them a bit to respond as this is the weekend, most of us like to kick back and have a beer or three, or was that 6? No, sorry, 8. I think. 9? Anyone?

My sons story book uses the word "tromp" that's kinda interesting

"dinosaur O dinosaur stop tromping all around, The silver moon is shining, its time to settle down"

Anyhow, Welcome again!

Could be a bad fixture stop, or dropped a gate, I'ld start where Cal recomended. Could also be a vacum breaker if they leave a garden hose on the spicket, with a vacum breaker.
