    Below is a quote form the "Submersible Pumps and multiple check valves" sticky thread:

    Would the leak come from the threads where the valve is installed/connected to existing plumbing or or they referring to a leak inside the valve?

    Thanks,
    yeto

    I am not the author, but my take is the leak would primarily be across the seal of the valve.

    Once water hammer becomes a problem, it can also result in fractured fittings causing leaks to the atmosphere.
