Water Hammer
Posted by Marc on April 04, 19100 at 01:32:13:
I've recently completely re-did my masterbathroom, including a lot of new plumbing. I've been very careful to strap all my pipe with appropriate strapping, but I still get a considerable water hammer with all three fixtures (shower, toilet and sink, that order in circuit). I thought of using air traps, but what are the specifics of installing them.? Where in relation to the valve, how high above valve, orientation, and opening (I've heard to use a 3/4 to have reducer with a 3/4" air trap on 1/2" pipe)? Any pictures to look at?
