Hearing water pounding against balcony pipe


The developer of my new apartment did a poor job of planning where to situate the balcony drainage pipes. I can hear the noise of water pounding against the pipes when it rains...to give you an idea, just think of the sound that comes from not completely turning off a faucet tap.

I need some advice on how to go about insulating the noise myself, or what type of contractor I should call to get them to have a look at this.

Another problem is that the balcony wall goes up to your waist without any gaps, so it's going to be difficult to somehow work on the pipe standing on the balcony itself.

thanks for any help~

sounds like you need someone to rework the gutter downspouts
