WHY IS YOUR WATER PRESSURE REGULATOR IMPORTANT?


Performance under pressure!

Water pressure regulators are an essential component of almost every building on the public water supply. There are many different types of water pressure regulators to consider, each one made for different applications. Pressure regulators are mounted inline on the incoming water supply and can be exposed or buried.

Water pressure regulators control both the water pressure and the flow rate of the incoming water supply. A damaged or worn out pressure regulator can result in destructively high water pressure in the building.

The most common indicators of a malfunctioning regulator are:
  • high/low water pressure
  • high/low water flow
  • surging water
  • banging pipes
  • vibrating pipes
  • leaking toilet fill valves
  • leaking hot water relief valves
  • broken pipes and leaking faucets

You may or may not notice the symptoms listed and the symptoms listed may be related to other plumbing system problems.

Recommended water pressure in a home is 55 PSI; the most state codes list the maximum safe allowable pressure at 80 PSI in any building. Most faucet, toilet and water heater manufacturers void their warranties when water pressure exceeds 80 PSI, and if you have a home warranty, some warranty companies void your coverage if your home has excessive pressure.
