My wife and I have been in our first house for about 4 months now.We have a problem with water hammer coming from the hot water side of the kitchen sink.When you turn the tap on or off you can hear kind of a clanging noise.If you turn the faucet on to about halfway the pressure will diminish and then there will be a constant vibrating kind of noise until either it is shut off or the faucet is turned up.The house was built in 1938 but the plumbing was updated in 1987.I just finished renovating the bathroom including moving some plumbing and the line to the kitchen looks good as far as I can see.The kitchen taps are the old style that go into the wall not mounted on the sink.Any ideas?Also I see that Oatey makes a water hammer arrester.Do these work?
