Water hammer happens when you turn off a faucet too quickly and it only happens for a couple of seconds. You have a bad faucet washer and it is vibrating like a reed when the water flows past it. Especially when the gap is small as when the faucet is not turned all the way on.

: I desperately need someone's help. I live in a condo on the third floor. Any time I turn on my shower water hammer pound my house and building so loudly that my neighbors are calling the police!

: I have contacted the builder and the property management firm to no avail. I understand that most if not all of the top floor units have this ssame problem.

: The noise gets very loud, it can be heard across the street over 500 yards away, at the comfort zone for a hot shower. Running the water hot enough to scald oneself seems to minimize the proble...however, obviously this is not my preferred solution.

: I am open to any and all sugestions. My neighbors will be eternally in debt to anyone providing an answer. One neighbor recently informed me that he now sleeps wearing EARPLUGS every night!

: Thanks in advance for your assistance.

: Sincerely

: Barry
