The following are the some information related Pipes. The noise is simply made by air vibrating down tubes of different lengths and diameters. 

Blowing across the tops of the tubes sets up a vibration. The frequency (pitch/note) is determined by the physical dimensions of the tubes. 

If you blow across the top of an empty bottle you will hear a note. Try blowing across the top of a different sized bottle, or a bottle partly filled with water and you will get a different note. 

Pipes are constructed to take advantage of this phenomenon. 

With temperatures predicted to fall to 0 to 10 degrees overnight, frozen water pipes will be a concern for some midstate residents.

“Frigid temperatures can lead to frozen water pipes inside of the home and costly plumbing repairs, while substantial amounts of blowing and drifting snow can impede access to fire hydrants during emergencies,” said Pennsylvania American Water Vice President of Operations Steve Tambini. “We advise customers to take safety measures that will help protect their homes and neighborhoods from extreme winter weather.”

If you have pipes that are vulnerable to freezing, allow a small trickle of water to run overnight to keep pipes from freezing. The cost of the extra water is low compared to the cost to repair a broken pipe.

Open cabinet doors to expose pipes to warmer room temperatures to help keep them from freezing.
