noisy pipes

the pipes for the tub/shower in my hall bath make a high pitched wine when turned on, it dont seem to make a difference if its on hot or cold, no other piping in the house makes any kind of noise, also the hot water heater happens to be right above this bathroom (in the attic). any ideas?
thanks.

If you have a single handle controller for the water, I would say it needs a new cartridge. the "O" rings are probably worn and need replaced. Good luck.

Yes, I have a single handle Delta faucet. What exactly is the cartridge? The only thing ive replaced is the push in diverter. Its weird, you cant hear the noise in the bathroom, just on the other side of the wall (living room). Also, i use to have a water pressure problem, (it was 125psi), but thats been fixed now, dunno if that damaged anything or not. thanks.

The cartridge is under the handle. Once you remove the handle, you can pull out the cartridge for repair/replacement. Watch the way the cartridge is set into the faucet (top/bottom) so you replace it the same way. Most Home centers carry Delta parts. Take the old one with you to make sure though.

The ball assembly has the "O" rings in it. Thats where I would start to look. I am betting that one or both of these rings are worn and thats whats making the noise.
