Water hammer arrestors control the destructive shock of water hammer and reduce pressure in the piping system to safe levels.
Engineered water hammer arrestors employ a permanently sealed cushion of air or gas which absorbs the energy of water hammer and reduces pressure rise in the piping system to a safe level. Hydrotrol units correctly sized and placed at specific locations in the water piping system will control the destructive shock of water hammer.
Lead-Free Product Feature:
Lead-Free Law (US Senate Bill S.3874) passed and was signed by the President on January 04, 2011 with the effective date of January 04, 2014. This Federal Law mandates the whetted surface of pipe, fixture, and fittings sold for or installed in potable water applications conveying potable water for the purpose of drinking and/or cooking purposes, not contain more than 0.25% lead by weight. Similar laws have also been passed and are already in effect in California, Vermont, Maryland, and Louisiana. This JR Smith product does meet these criteria.
