Water Hammer Can Break Pipes Resulting in Expensive Repair Bills
According to plumbingmart.com, water hammer is usually recognized by a banging or thumping in water lines. Although it might seem to be a smooth flow, the water inside the pipe actually churns and tumbles as it moves through.
Some consumers who have bought LG front loader washing machines have experienced water hammer when using some LG front loader washers. Some consumers have even resorted to purchasing water hammer arrestors to alleviate the loud banging. These arrestors use a cushion of air that absorbs the momentum of the water flow or the pressure pulses generated by the sudden interruption of water in the line. This pulsation or water hammering can be harmful for the pipes as they weaken the joints and eventually break the pipes leading to water leakage.
LG and other companies have already been the subject of lawsuits that alleged certain front load washers were defective because they accumulated mold and mildew and were unable to clean themselves, resulting in odors that permeated the consumers’ clothes and homes.
