Atla/AquaLiv Water Systems are rated for water line pressures up to 75 psig. If you have a higher water pressure or are in an area that gets pressure surges or water hammer, we highly recommend installing a Shok Blok™ Pressure Surge Protector.
Shok Blok™ is designed for high-pressure installations to protect water filters, ice makers, coffee machines, chillers, hot tanks, and water coolers to name a few.
All appliances that connect directly to line pressure are susceptible to bursting at high pressures or sudden pressure surges. Shok Blok™ keeps your water pressure below 75 psig during surges as high as 200 psig.
Our Shok Blok™ features 3/8" OD Quick Connect fittings for plug-and-play use with the Atla/AquaLiv Water System.
If you have a pressure regulator on your house already, you should also add a Shok Blok™. Typical pressure regulators don't offer enough protection against surges or water hammer.
Shok Blok™ is not a pressure regulator, it only protects against sudden pressure surges above 75 psig. If you have line pressure above 75 psig, we strongly recommend a whole house pressure regulator be installed and set to 60-70 psig. This will also greatly extend the life of your faucets and water-connected appliances.
If you are using the Atla/AquaLiv System with a dedicated faucet and the water flows with way too much force when the faucet is fully open, add a Shok Blok™.
If in doubt, add a Shok Blok™. $13.95 is very inexpensive insurance against high-pressure surge failures and subsequent water damage in your home.
