We use our water pipes all day long. Just think of a quick hand wash, switching on the dishwasher or running a washing machine. And that's why it's so important that you protect your pipes optimally with a water hammer. What are the water hammer costs and what is involved in the installation? Find out in this article!

What is a water hammer silencer?

Sometimes you may hear a noise when opening or closing a tap or when turning on or off a certain machine that uses water. This noise is caused by the abrupt opening and/or closing of the water. To prevent this, you can install a so-called water hammer damper. Moreover, you protect your pipes much better with this. A water hammer silencer is a metal housing with an air cushion and a valve. The air is pushed out of the cushion when the water is stopped and the valve ensures that new air can enter the cushion continuously.
