Water Hammer Arresters??

Where can I buy these?

I called all my local supply stores and no one carries them, well 10 places said no, a few others had no clue what I was talking about, and if they did carry them it's not what I'm looking for.

This place has them in 1\2" cpvc for 15 bucks a piece.

For safety, I would like to install a couple of these on the hot & cold lines.

Can I pressure test the lines with a "water hammer arrestor" hooked up in line??

or do these have to be installed after?

I answered your question in the CPVC post. Guess we were both typing at the same time.

once again thanks for the reply.

I ordered a handfull of them from an online supply store.

I'm going to install them by the washer hookups hot&cold. A couple in some other places. And then on top of that I guess I'll do your method of installing a piece straight up at the highest point.

Thanks again.

hopefully with these precautions I won't have the problem of 400 psi blowing my lines apart.
