Pay your union plumbers invoice and he will return your call and warranty his work and you won't have to bother us so you can fix it yourself and save.

Here water hammer arresters have be a mechanical device not just pipe and cap on it, which is not an approved device, they have to be a accessible.

Re: Water Hammer Arrester Question


A mechanical device would have to accessible because it will eventually fail. The old school system worked for 50 years +/-. The plumber said it wasn't nessesary and left it out but as soon as he turned the new valve on it hammered, so I made him put it back the way it was, and it worked.

Funny thing about it, is they don't enforce that part of the code here, you just don't see them in residential applications, now granted in commercial applications they will be seen, but hay if you got water hammer in your home, chances are your pressure is too high, throw in that PRV and fix it, don't just put a band aid on it with arresters.

Suffice it to say I disagree with you, we'll leave it at that.
