Maintaining a plumbing air chamber is essential for a healthy and efficient plumbing system. To refill the air chamber, start by turning off the water in the water meter. Then, open the tallest faucets in your home, starting from the top and working your way down. As the water drains, the chambers will refill with air.
Once all the water is drained from the chamber, open the main valve slowly and leave the upper tap open. This will restore the cushion of air in the chamber.An air bladder is an effective way to reduce water hammering. However, it is important to understand its limitations and disadvantages. If you experience sudden hammering, it is likely that the inner tubes in your plumbing system have become soggy.

This will allow the air to refill the chamber.To empty the air in a bubble chamber and reduce its size, hold up the bladder while repeatedly pressing the bubble control knob until you have a bubble of the desired size.
