Why does the hot water in my shower make a squealing noise in the pipers in the wall?

Question by Skadoosh: Why does the hot water in my shower make a squealing noise in the pipers in the wall?
This happens in only one shower in my house, no others sinks or showers or anything! I have a single knob to control hot and cold and when I have the cold water on there is no noise, but when I turn it to hot, it makes the noise and it doesn’t stop until I turn the water back to cold, or to off. My house is only about 10 years old.
Thanks!

either you have a pipe not fastened securely in your wall and it’s vibrating on something or there is air getting trapped in the hot water line. Hard to say without actually hearing it.

    Hi, Skadoosh!

    It sounds like your supply pipes are not properly strapped to the internal wall members.
