This page shows a pressure gauge reacting to the waterhammer emanating from the toilet tank when the fill valve shut off. The gauge is connected to an outdoor hose bibb located16 feet downstream of the cold water takeoff to the toilet. The red needle on the gauge shows the highest pressure recorded by the gauge. After the waterhammer, it's pegged against the zero post of the 200 psi gauge.
