If it's that "machine-gun" hammer when the tap is turned on, take it apart and wrap Teflon tape around the washer spindle to reduce the clearance. Of course a new tap would be better.

Given that the tank is under pressure, I can't see how air could get in. Any hole results in water coming out, not air going in. Sylvia.

Its the new tank in the garage that is under pressure and is leaking, stupid. They have and she says that.

Sylvia Else <sylvia@email.invalid> wrote That's not the reason for water hammer. Due to air getting in. The fix is to fix the leak, fill the small gap in the ceiling trim. Nope, water hammer moves the dust and dirt off the pipe.

Get a plumber to disconnect the water supply to the old rood mounted tank if it's not done already.

Darren, I'm shocked! You've posted a reasonable response, one I could agree with, and not a sign of your usual hate filled vitriol and invective. Keep it up, it might be a harbinger of a new you, and not before time.

If you can access the other end of the pipe in question it should be easy enough to cut and cap it. Is it copper or gal? A plumber shouldn't charge too much to do a simple job like that if you can't do it yourself. Does your bathroom ha

The tank in the garage is the current hot water storage tank/heater. Sylvia.

The tank shouldn't be under any pressure at all if it's not being used. I presume you have a more modern hot water service somewhere else on the property? If you do, then the supply and feed pipes to this old lump should have been cu

The problem started with the appearance of dust and grit falling into the bath. It was not at all obvious where it was coming from. With showers being preferred, the bath is little used, so this wasn't coming from the taps. I climbed int

I still have a BWD503 that I fire up from time to time. That's probably a lightweight compared to the 521 but it's heavy enough. I'll have to check eletrotanya for the full 503 manual and if not there I'll upload it.

**Indeed it did. Phil referred it to me. Interestingly, I also have a nice little Leader CRO I am servicing and the Elektrotanya copy of the manual is more complete and significantly better quality than the one I sourced elsewhere. BT

I hardly ever look at this group. Yeah, I had a BWD521 but I gave it away and I'm pretty sure I included the manual with it. The Electrotanya version of it looks complete so that should get you out of trouble. 👍
