Thank you for your interest in the Manifold N-100F! Yes, according to the manufacturer, this Valve Set-Up is a soft-closing valve to prevent water hammer. It depends on the water pressure and GPM to dictate the slowness or speed of closing. This Valve also has a unique “reverse flow” design that permits equal pressure distribution on both sides of the diaphragm, regardless of line pressure. This provides zero stress to prevent “stretching,” a common cause of valve failure. We hope this helps! Please refer to the specification sheet if you have more questions.
