Can hammer arrestors be installed upside down?
Yes. Oatey hammer arrestors are gas filled chambers which absorb shock no matter what angle they are installed.
Will the hammer arrestors ever fill with water?
No. The arrestors are gas filled and sealed with internal O-Rings. The only way that the arrestor will fill with water, is if one of the internal O-Rings fail. The O-Rings cannot be replaced and the arrestor would have to be replaced.
