Questions & Answers

Could I use this on my water line that connects to my refrigerator?

The normal uses of it would be as described above. It's compressed fit 1/4 inch pipe style, so it expects 1/4 inch pipe fittings and connections inline. In that case, a bit of copper pipe can be used as an adapter. *br>If that does not happen, you can simply remove the nut from either side, but that size works with 3/8 pipe connections, unless it is one designed for 1/4 pipe.

What if I want to use this on the supply line of a swamp cooler?

You can use the 1/4 fittings as long as you have the correct ones. Check the supply line if it is "humming" or if that is part of the problem. This is a nice device to use on the humidifier line that shuts it down.

I imagine this thing has to be so small that you have to use a magnifying glass to find it. What can I do with an Aprilaire 800 steam humidifier to make that work?

The line to your humidifier must be 1/4 in order for it to fit and The shock absorber measures about 3+ inches long and is about 2+ inches wide across the fittings. I have tested it, and it works. A "moaning" sound was coming from my humidifier line when the door was open, and this stopped it.

Is our shock buster in need of replacement? She has always "knocked" and has been two years old since then. Is it on the second washing machine?

Nonetheless, I received this as a gift from my brother who used it to remove the knocking he heard when he turned the knob to release his water filtration unit. The best I can tell you is that he is happy with the solution, but I am unsure of how it would work for

A high-quality humidifier, the Aprilair 800, has been stopped because of water hammer
5/5

The furnace on my house made clunking sounds when heating this winter, so there was a call to the service company. As a result of the humidifier cycling its water feed during the heating cycle, the Aprilair 800 humidifier was clunking. According to him, the 1/4" copper water feed tube should be fitted with an arrestor against water hammer. Installing this item is a task I completed myself after purchasing it at Amazon. There were no clunks at all and they don't return! If you want to install this arrestor close enough to your humidifier to make it convenient for you to use it, make sure to leave enough space around it so that you can get to Moreover, you should remove approximately an inch to an inch and a half of the tubing from the location where you will install the arrestor, so that you can maintain the routing of the tubing and the tension.

This is a must-have for any humidifier that humidifies the entire house! The solenoid on a plumbed whole house humidifier caused a solid thump water hammer when the device While I isolated the copper line, ensured smooth curves, and rigged up standoffs to anchor the supply line to the wall with grommets to help isolate the line, I still heard a solid thud every time the solenoid shut down My plumbing was done right before the humidifier connected to the line
5/5

It takes five minutes to fix the plumbing and the sound is To avoid making up a short fitting between it and the humidifier, it would have been excellent if it came with a female swivel coupling on one end.

My humidifier has stopped making any noises that were related to the input water
5/5

My home became much more comfortable in the winter when I installed my AprilAir 800 humidifier - it immediately made the air more comfortable. Although it was quiet, occasionally the water fill made quite a lot of noise and I would have to sleep amid the sounds. The IPS Shock Buster was easy to install (about 4 inches from my humidifier inlet) because it features a spring action. Noise from the fills has been removed entirely. I think this is a nicely built product. It doesn't seem to matter which way it is oriented Although there is no documentation included with the item, the installation has proven to be relatively straight forward. I installed mine with the chamber facing down, and it appears to work just fine. thing I did not know was whether or not orientation would be important.

I was in awe of how well it worked
5/5

It is crucial to have a great location. solenoid valve on my furnace humidifier operated with a shock that could be heard throughout my house whenever it shut off. My shock-absorbing system has been installed About 18" from my humidifier there is a puncture in the 1/4" copper tubing water supply line. I was in awe of how well it worked. It is crucial to have a great location. My previous installation of the 1/2" shock arrester in the half inch copper tube was about 8 feet above the 1/4" tube upstream of the humidifier. Since the 1/4" shock-mount did not stop the water hammer, I installed a 1/2 " shock-mount instead The buster. A larger arrester may not have worked because the shock from the solenoid may have passed through tubing of smaller diameter before reaching the arrester in the larger pipes.

I use this with my humidifier and it works great
5/5

There was a water hammer (more like a deep roar! ), which goes on every time our furnace humidifier is After using this for a few months, I have not felt any vibrations. I had no trouble installing it with my pipe cutter and a couple of.

Worked perfectly for me
5/5

I wished I had used this item before. I had a humidifier whose solenoid would hum as soon as it was That was a fantastic stop. There are no restrictions on how claims can be mounted. Working on refrigerators should also be part of the job. There is an expectation that 1/4 inch pipe will be attached with compression fittings. With the nut removed, you are left with a thread 3/8 inch in diameter. However, this is not the same thread as in Simply make a small adapter out of 1/4 inches of copper pipe with compression fittings if you want to connect it to an end.

A fix has been made for the We had a copper water line that hammered every time its water was turned on
5/5

I find it so annoying! After we figured out what to do, it took a while to fix the problem. I thank Google and Amazon for their help. It took me only a few minutes to install this little tool and it worked great!.

Humidifier water fills up on a quieted Aprilaire 800
5/5

With this product added to an Aprilaire 800 whole house humidifier, I no longer experience solenoid/water knocks every time I fill the humidifier. I found this to work well and install easily. We recommend this product.
