    Hey,

    I have some water hammer going on when my washing machine fills, so I have bought a water hammer arrestor

    Which is all great but when it arrived, it has a massive warning on the back saying that it contains 'cancerous causing chemicals...'. With a bit more research I think that it contains some lead (possibly).

    So my question: is this safe to use and fit to my washing machine? I am assuming it must be otherwise it wouldn't have been sold!

    Cheers in advance

    link to what you bought because normally there just an expansion vessel or a bit of tube with a cap end
