    I've got an issue with water hammer whenever our bathtub is used for showering. I'd like to try to eliminate the faucet as the culprit.

    I searched the other 'identify faucet' threads and the closest I found was a Price Pfister.

    Here are some pics of mine. Any help would be appreciated. IMG_0187_01.jpg IMG_0186.jpg

    I'd start with replacing the bathtub spout. Probably the diverter failing.

    Drain all the pipes in the house.
    Turn off main water, open up all taps and faucets, even outside.
    Let them run til dry.
    Don’t flush toilets, the fill valves can clog up.

    Turn on water, flush air and rust from each faucet one at a time.
    Turn off water heater til all this is done.
    This should restore the air in the air chambers at all your fixtures, incl your shower/tub.

    Thanks for your replies. I think I'll start with the least expensive option first, then move on from there.

    Nice shirt, eh?

    Moen, and that valve isn’t causing you water hammer. Hire a plumber.
