Ideal for use where Lead-Free* fittings are required. Designed to protect residential, commercial and industrial water lines during pressure surges following quick valve closure. This excessive pressure surge is absorbed by the pre-charged cushion of air permanently sealed within the water hammer arrester. The water hammer arrester may be installed within a stud bay without the need for an access panel.
