Getting the pressure waves in Fluent for a water hammer problem

I bet there is someone throughout this forum who ever worked in simulating the water hammer phenomena, in a pipe. My questions would be:
1. If I choose water as fluid medium, how could I transform it into a compressible fluid, via an UDF, or what MACROs could I use for this.
2. How could I better visualize the subsequent pressure fluctuations.
3. Is there the need to couple with the acoustic module? If yes, is there some tutorials to provide, I would be very grateful.
4. For the case of a sudden appearing crack in the wall pipe, is this situation a bit similar to the genuine water hammer problem?
I would be very appreciative for sharing your experiences!
Thanks in advance!

Did you solved your problem? I also need to simulate water as compressible flow. Could you please explain to me how did you solved it? use any udf or special treatments?
