I believe that one cause would be air in the lines. A Plumbing system must have a vent in order to drain properly, if the vent is of improper size or improperly installed the drain will gurgle much like a gallon of water turned upside down sucks air in through the water. In metal pipes this sound will echo and create a rattleing sound, moreso than plastic pipes.
