water hammer
Posted by bob stocker on March 20, 1999 at 12:48:43:
I have water hammer in the water lines and was reading about the different hammer arresters that are available for residential water lines. What are the recommended locations for installing these ; on the cold inline side or on the hot output from the water heater? I also hear what sounds like a lot a popping and crakling in the water heater. This seems to be where the majority of the water line noise is coming from when the faucets and toliets are used. Does this indicate the water heater is on the way out? Maybe the problem is not just or only water hammer within the line but just a water heater on its last legs?? Advice?
