an old hammer wedged between two pipes « »


This shows a hammer wedged between the copper supply line and boiler feed line at the basement sub-floor to help reduce water hammer, that banging sound caused by air in the pipes. Who knew a hammer could eliminate water hammer? All these years, I thought they were only good for nailing.
