Oatey® Quiet Pipes® - Silencing the Water Hammer

CLEVELAND--()--Oatey Co. (Oatey) announces the launch of Quiet Pipes® Water Hammer Arrestors, servicing a full range of commercial and residential applications. Quiet Pipes is designed to help solve current and potential water hammer problems by absorbing the water shock in a plumbing system when a valve is closed abruptly.

Water hammer is the persistent clanking, banging and pounding in pipes behind the wall that frequently happens in residential and commercial buildings. Water hammer can occur when flushing a toilet, turning on or off a water valve or even with the changing of cycles in a washing machine. The waves caused by the change in water flow create a noise within the piping system. Left untreated, water hammer can harm different parts of the plumbing system including pipe supports, faucets, valves and even water heaters.

Oatey’s Quiet Pipes includes a polypropylene piston design with two NBR O-rings within the chamber to help absorb the water shock in the system. With Quiet Pipes when a valve on a water line is closed abruptly, the water moves into the pressurized chamber and the shock is absorbed. Once the water flow comes out of the chamber, it is dissipated to the rest of the water line preventing clanking or banging.

Quiet Pipes offer a wide range of connection types and is compliant with commercial and residential code requirements. They provide solutions for many applications including multi-fixtures in hospitals, multi-family and hospitality, to single fixture in single-family dwellings. Quiet Pipes Water Hammer Arrestors are listed and approved for installation with no access panel required and carry a limited warranty.
