WATER HAMMER - Noise, created by a water surge or rapid flow change of water, in a steam system. When a change of direction is reached, by water being carried along in air, both at the same velocity, it cannot smoothly turn the corner due to its mass. When it strikes the pipe, it makes a hammering noise.

WATER HAMMER ARRESTOR - A device installed near a fixture to absorb the hydraulic shock caused by a sudden shutoff of water.
