This piston style water hammer arrestor manufactured by Sioux Chief is intended for the sole purpose of relieving water hammer inside piping systems. Water hammer occurs when a fixture or valve is suddenly shut of and the kinetic energy of the system has no where to escape. This energy travels through the system seeking an exit, until it is abruptly stopped by colliding with the piping and fittings. This occurrence shakes the system, and can lead the system to falter if not handled properly. The piston inside the water hammer arrestor absorbs the momentum of the water hammer. Water hammer can occur inside systems containing toilets, sinks, washing machines, tubs, and many other residential appliances. This Mini-Rester is compliable with the federal laws and NSF61 pertaining to the low lead content in this product being no more than 0.25%.
