  • Water hammering

    I have a problem with water pipe banging, I have a well with a 30/50 PSI control and i have water hammering when i shut off any valve or when a toilet tanks stops filling, iam going to install a water surge shock absorber is there a good place to install it or any place in the cold water line ok.

    check your tank, if a bladder type its probably shot.

      I am sure what Bob D is referring to is your expansion tank, I agree with him on looking there first. Is this a new problem or have you noticed this for a long time and just now getting around to it. Do you own a water pressure test gauge?

          Shock stops work best when placed in a straight run with the pipping system experiencing water hammer. Since shock typically runs straight up and down / side to side - the fewer elbows the better with your install.
