Description for Sioux Chief 660-GTC1

NOTE: Image depicts straight Mini-Rester

Water hammer occurs when the flow of moving water is suddenly stopped by a closing valve. This sudden stop results in a tremendous spike of pressure behind the valve which acts like a tiny explosion inside the pipe. This pressure spike reverberates throughout the plumbing system, rattling and shaking pipes, until it is absorbed. Normally, a sufficient pocket of air will absorb such a pressure spike, but if no pocket of air is present, expensive fixtures and appliances within the plumbing system will be damaged as they are left to absorb this pressure spike.

  • All Mini-Resters are AA size
  • All Mini-Resters are approved for sealed wall installations with no access panel required
  • May be installed at any angle

Materials:
  • Arrester body: type L copper tube

We installed a new High Efficiency washer and it turns the water on and off multiple times throughout a normal wash cycle. From the first use of this washer, we immediately had excessive water hammer, shuttering our pipes throughout the house. I installed a Sioux Chief mini-arrestor on both the hot and cold water supplies and they completely relieved our water hammer problem. Thanks to PexSupply [...] we could get rid of that annoying water hammer.

Comments about Mini-Rester Water Hammer Arrestor - 3/4" F Swivel Hose Thread x 3/4" M Hose Thread Tee:

We got this product very quickly and they were easy to install directly to the back of the washing machine. Turned on the water and began a wash. No longer hear or feel the pipes banging throughout the house. Our water pressure is 60# and on a well. This did the trick! Thank you for offering a product that actually works!

Water Hammer caused by other problems.

By Shyster Plumber

Comments about Mini-Rester Water Hammer Arrestor - F Swivel Ballcock Nut x M Ballcock Thread Tee:

After installing the arrestor the hammer continued. When I placed a pressure gage on the system I found that the PSI in the system was almost 100 PSI. I adjusted the pressure regulator on the incoming water line from the water meter and adjusted the PSI down to 70 and the problem was solved. Suggest you measure the water pressure before looking for other causes. Still I am impressed with the quality of this product.

Comments about Mini-Rester Water Hammer Arrestor - 3/4" F Swivel Hose Thread x 3/4" M Hose Thread Tee:

My washing machine was sending loud, pounding shock waves to and through all the adjacent plumbing every time it started a wash or rinse cycle as it pulsed shots of water into the load of clothes. I simply disconnected the hoses at the machine, installed the Water Hammer Arrestors to each water input, and reconnected the hoses to the Arrestors. Now all is quiet and calm. They really work.

  • Mini-Rester Water Hammer Arrestor - 5/8" O.D. Compression Tee for 1/2" Nominal Copper Tube

    Q:

    CAN THE ARRESTOR BE INSTALLED AFTER THE ZONE VALVE OR MUST IT GO BETWEEN THE SUPPLY AND THE VALVE?
    Asked on 11/2/2013 by FRED from HELENA MONTANA

    4 answers

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      I apologize in advance because this might be a lengthy response. Note: I am not a plumber but do have plenty of plumbing experience, and have installed a few Sioux Chief Arrestors. Simple answer: Yes, these arrestors can be installed about anywhere along the supply. However, they are most effective when installed as close as to the valve as possible (within reason). Usually by the appliance shut off valve. Since most of the blunt force of water hammer is on the valve when closed, the arrestor acts as a shock absorber. These aren't really necessary for manual valve items (faucets, toilets, showers, etc.). But recommended for appliances that have electronic valves (ice makers, dishwashers, clothes washers, etc.) since they close the flow of water so fast. Water hammer can damage these valves. I have an ice maker that the water valve would go bad at least once a year due to a combination of high water pressure and water hammer. Not a big deal to change, but sometimes when the valve went bad, it would start to leak; causing more trouble. No more problems now that I installed a water regulator and arrestor. I actually have a larger Sioux Chief arrestor installed after the regulator, and mini-arrestors installed for both the ice maker and dishwasher. I hope this answers your question, feel free to get a 2nd opinion by a professional. There's also a lot of good info online. Regards, Steve

      Zone valve? Are you installing this in a heating system? I installed
      them close to the taps serving my clothes washer to eliminate the hammer
      created by the solenoid fill valves closing rapidly.

      A:

      Assuming the sudden closing of the zone valve is causing your water hammer, it must be installed on the supply side of the valve.

      A:

      Yes it can be installed horizontally and will work fine.
      I am unclear as to where you wanted to put the sweat tee; in place of the
      female threaded inlet? If so, I would do that with an adapter, rather than
      modifying the mini-rester itself. But if you need to eliminate the FIP
      inlet fitting for space reasons, you could cut it off, leaving as much of
      the ½” copper tubing as possible and de-burr it thoroughly, being sure that
      no debris from that process gets into the mini-rester. Then when you solder
      that new end into a tee, wrap a damp rag tightly around the cast brass tee
      which is part of the mini-rester to keep the piston seals as cool as
      possible during the soldering operation.
      If you happen to have an automatic shut-off valve in the wall, which is
      designed to close the water supply to the washer if there is a leak, this
      mini-rester will not work downstream from it. If that is the case, write me
      back and I will tell you what to do.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      they can be installed at any angle, i would not sweat this arrester since you would most likley need another adapter to sweat to.
      there are better options for sweatable arresters. search some more, that it was i went with since this arrester pictured belowe was not large enough to handle the water hammer.
      i went with a sioux chief 3/4" sweatable arrester. the arrester itself was about a foot long.
      got rid of the hammer.
      hope this helps.

      A:

      The Sioux Chief data sheet on their arrestors clearly states that the
      operate in any orientation.
      Sioux Chief offers a wide selection of attachments - but the arrestor
      itself is threaded and can be removed from whatever adapter it is on and
      screwed into a threaded fitting. For instance, it can be mounted
      directly on the valves in their arrestor-less OxBox products by removing
      the threaded plugs in the valves and screwing the arrestor in.

      It should still work OK but you will have to purchase a couple of reducers/adapters at the hardware store.

      A:

      This particular arrestor (660-H) has 3/4" hose thread. The questions about 1/2" pipe are referring to other similar products that get grouped together on the Q&A section.

      Answered on 3/23/2012 by PexSupply Staff from NY
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      First, confirm that you really have 3/4" copper.  3/4" copper has a 7/8" outside
      diameter (OD)  If the measured OD is 3/4" then it is actually 5/8" copper.
      However, what you really need to consider is the type and size  of the
      connection fitting.  The Sioux Chief model shown has hose thread connections
      (think garden hose).  This is probably not what you need to connect to a copper
      line, which would typically require some combination of soldered slip
      connection, compression fitting, or pipe thread connection -- male MIPS or
      female FIPS.  Also, the Shark Bite type connections have become popular.  There
      is more than one way to do what you want.
