In response to Re: Water Hammer Problem
Air chambers and shock controls have a minimal effect if they are not installed right at the device causing the water hammer, namely a quick closing valve or faucet.

: I hear what sounds like water hammer coming from the basement when I shut off the water from my bathroom sink. Both hot and cold seem to make it happen. I installed water hammer arresters in place of the air columns, again both hot and cold, but no change in sound coming from the basement. Could the hammer be occuring at the water heater or water softener? Should I install a larger size arrester at these devices?
