Plumbing: What are these??


These two 'things' are on the water supply to my washer. One of them is leaking. Can I just replace these with the copper bubble tube things? These appear to be threaded on, not sweated.

Thanks!

They look like water hammer arrestors.

Ok... I have never seen ones like this before. Im used to the tubes. I guess they used these because the drain pipes are in the way. I moved in here a few months ago by they way.

I can't seem to find a replacement for these anywhere.

You can use the tubes if you can find one that fits the space. I've had good luck with Sioux Chief arrestors.

Honestly those look more like automotive dash pots than plumbing parts.

Tell me about it. Went to Home Depot and got a couple Souix Chief arresters to replace these. I'm actually going to replace this with a couple brass plugs and install the arresters on the back of the washer.

I love their attention to detail. Guy that put those in grew up in the 1920's. Breaks my heart having to tear things out people did so long ago.

here's what looks like a modern update of them...

kind of cool how you can fill them, tailor the pressure to ( hopefully ) match the hammer.
