Please Help me!!! Sound proofing problems
I just renovated my bathroom and I am getting an echo and hearing my neighbor's water running through the walls. What's wrong? I never had this problem before..

Do the bathroom walls need to be insulated or is there another solution?

Yes Karen, seeing as you just finished you remodel, I would suggest looking for someone to come in and blow the insulation in (NOT FOAM, not if the bays contain pipes as it sounds.) The reason for the "Blown in" insulation is it least invasive ie; mimal mess, small holes to repair in SR vs Re sheetrock after legthy demo. The only problem is it will be at a premium, if you can even find someone to do such a small job.
Good luck
