Water Hammer
Posted by Kevin LeFevre on January 05, 2003 at 11:23:08:
I am experiencing bad water hammer when I use my main floor bathtub. When you turn the single lever valve halfway between cold and hot it is fine. If you go to crank the valve to hot, the pipes make a loud hammering/vibrating noise. Once it is totally turned to hot, the hammer stops. The pipes run in my laundry room in the basement, down 4feet and under my landing about 6'across and then up to my tub about 6'. I have to fix this hammering problem, its driving me nuts. If I put water hammer arrestors at the point where the hot and cold water pipes enter the valve, would this solve my problem?
