Buzz in Water Lines - Bathroom Sink

Has anyone ever hooked up to water at a resort and then had the bathroom water lines start "buzzing?" We just pulled in and hooked up and the bathroom water lines started vibrating, causing a buzz. Weird!

The only time my water did funny things such as gurgling and bubbling was after I had antifreeze (the pink stuff) in the tank. It almost sounds like you are getting air in the line somewhere between your hookup faucet and the sink. Do you have a water regulator inline? If so, you may want to try removing it.

We picked one of these up last winter. Works great, delivering water similar to what we are used to at home.

Yes, these little water softeners work very well. I purchased one of the "On The Go" units two years ago. It only takes about 20 to 30 minutes to backwash and recharge the unit. It requires 1 lb. of non-iodized table salt for a recharge and will provide soft water for 4 to 6 weeks depending on usage.

When I blow out my lines, I attach to the hose connection. As I increase pressure, there is a "buzz" Perhaps it comes from the check valve in there or the little screen.
