    Hi everyone,

    I have this very weird problem with the apartment I just rented in Geneva, Switzerland. Very old building.

    Because of the heating that goes in the radiator, the pipe that goes from the wall to the radiator dilates and makes this terrible noise, every 1-2 seconds, especially during night time (11PM, 2AM, 3.30AM, 5AM, 6AM) etc.

    I have been trying for the past two months to get the real-estate agency to fix it, with no luck.

    Do you have any idea what I can do myself that might be able to fix it?

    I will try and paste youtube and souncloud links below (with the recording of the sound), hopefully the forum admins will not block it:


    many thanks,
