|In response to Re: Water Hammer|
You really don't have many. Opening a faucet will allow the pipe to drain, but the "finger over the straw" is in the wall and there is no way to remove the finger. Little Chief MiniRestors installed on the pipe ahead of the fixture shutoff valves will help somewhat, and may even cure the problem permanently.

: : : : I have been told I have a case of water hammer. After I flush the toliet and the bowl fills back up the walls and pipes vibrate. A plumber told me we had to add air chambers to the plumbing but after talking to the builder we already have air chambers.
