    Re: Water Hammer Arrestors

    I don't even think we can install laundry boxes that don't have arrestors in the box with the valve anymore here. I've run into it a few times a year, but I usually find that the end of a longer run of straight pipe on a main in a basement (hopefully accessable) is a good place to stick a 3/4 bumper and quiet down D/W's, stools, whatever else. The old drain down type, as mentioned earlier in this thread, homeowners have to be educated about every few years if they have them. I had one recently that had me go ahead and put in mech ones so he didn't have to mess with the drain down anymore.
    sigpic3:00, I mean 5:00, and work is done. Time to crack a cold one.
