Crash! Bang! Water Hammer Strikes Again!

Have you ever been washing up the dishes after dinner and as you close of the tap you hear a banging or crashing of pipes, almost like a mini earthquake within the walls of your home? Sounds like you have water hammer.

Water hammer is a serious issue and if not fixed can lead to pipes bursting. Houses over 30 years old are particularly susceptible to this condition. It much easier to take action on this problem straight away then deal with a burst pipe and flooded bedroom! So if you have noticed large bangs every time you turn on and off the taps what can you do? The solution is simple and could save you a lot of heartache in the future.


The main solution to water hammer problems are installing a water hammer arrestor. A water hammer arrestor is a device that stops water hammer in an instant. It is an easy, quick and cheap way to fix the costly risk of water hammer. The arrestor consists of a spring and a waterproof air bladder which absorb the shock of moving water that was initially shocking your pipes. Unlike other devices such as air chambers, arrestors do not need recharging which means you don’t have to worry about water hammer again.
