This product works great but it must be installed properly. It did not work at all when installed on supply valve before washer hose. In my case installing directly onto the machine ( after the hose) made the difference. No hammer at all!!!
Pros: Easy to Install
Cons: No Instructions

Review 2 for Quiet Pipes Washing Machine Water Hammer Arrester
Since my local Home Depot carries no arrestors, I ordered two of these online from the Home Depot website. Delivery was quick. They are inexpensive, well-made, and easy to install. My new washing machine replaced a nine-year old one and it has many electronic sensing functions and I think it shuts water off relatively abruptly, causing water pressure spikes. The Oatey Quiet Pipes completely cured this problem. I believe the issue is the increasing use of quick-responding electronically controlled functions compared to the older mechanical, gear-driven operations in appliances such as washers.
Pros: Reliable, Easy to Install, Good Instructions, No Leaks, nicely made

Review 3 for Quiet Pipes Washing Machine Water Hammer Arrester
I got two of them and one leaked so I took it back and got another good one. I installed them on the back of the washer and moved the hose connection to the bottom of these units and now it is quiet and no knocking of the pipes. Works great .
Pros: Easy to Install, good price.
Cons: just hope you get 2 good ones the first time.

Review 4 for Quiet Pipes Washing Machine Water Hammer Arrester
My laundry room is in the basement on complete opposite side of house from my bedroom. But the water supply pipes originate from under my bedroom. I'd always regret doing a load of laundry at nite because the pipes would bang loud every time the water cycled. I finally did some detective work and figured out how to fix it - with two of these arrestors. 5 minute installation and presto, fixed like magic. Still can't believe running water can be that loud but these little guys work exactly as they should. I installed directly to my washer, but you can install at the supply line as well.
Pros: Reliable, Easy to Install, Good Instructions, No Leaks

Review 5 for Quiet Pipes Washing Machine Water Hammer Arrester
Since the installation of my LG washer my water pipes bang every time the washer is filling. It was loud and damaging my pipes. I googled a solution and water hammer arresters were recommended. Easy to fit, 10 minute job, works perfectly.
Pros: Easy to Install, Good Instructions, No Leaks, does what it says it does
Cons: no cons

Review 6 for Quiet Pipes Washing Machine Water Hammer Arrester
I installed 2 of these on my washer and it maybe caused the pipes to not vibrate quite as much but still very noticeable. I would not recommend these if pipes vibrate a lot. Might work for small vibrations.
Pros: Easy to Install, No Leaks
Cons: did not work

Review 11 for Quiet Pipes Washing Machine Water Hammer Arrester
Have high efficiency lg washer and dryer made pipes bang like donkey kong was in the house. Hooked these up directions said 10min to install more like 1min works great totally stopped the banging now we can finally run the washer at night without being kept up.Lg washers should come with these because i guess its a common problem.

Review 12 for Quiet Pipes Washing Machine Water Hammer Arrester
The product was easy to install however it did not stop the water hammer. For sure the new washing machine is causing the pipe shifts but the product did very little to stop the pipes banging so cannot recommend it only because for our application it did not fix the problem.
Pros: Easy to Install, Good Instructions, No Leaks
Cons: may not work

Review 13 for Quiet Pipes Washing Machine Water Hammer Arrester
Bought a new LG washing machine from Home Depot, hooked it up and the plumbing started to hammer when we used the washer. Installation was a breeze. It's super quiet now. No hammer or noise of any kind. We can even hear the TV !!

Review 14 for Quiet Pipes Washing Machine Water Hammer Arrester
I purchased a new LG washer from Home Depot and it was causing loud banging in my pipes. This device is easy to install and the surge tube can be in any orientation in any direction. It completely eliminated the LOUD water hammer. Be sure to buy two, one for the cold water and the other for the hot water. The best location to install is right to the washer but installing to wall connectors works too.
