Water Pressure Regulator

Water Pressure Regulator installation Services. When adjusting or changing your water pressure regulator, a professional installer should perform the work. Water pressures should not be too high or low. If too high, pipes could burst and cause a flood. See Install click here

Old Pressure Reducers

With most older regulators, you cannot adjust the pressure as they have become inoperable due to ware and tear, calcium, lime and sediment build-up and the cartridges break. It is not cost effective to have them rebuilt and only makes sense to have a new reducer installed.

Water Pressure Regulator Pressure – too high or too Low?

Go buy a water pressure gauge and screw it into your spigot or hose bib (after the water pressure regulator) and check. If it reads below 50 lbs p.s.i. or above 70 lbs p.s.i., give us a call. If over 80 lbs p.s.i…. it would be very dangerous and would need to change the water pressure regulator immediately! as your pipes could blow out and flood your home causing major damage.

A safe pressure is around 50 – 55 – 60 / The best pressure being 55 lbs p.s.i. In fact… it is advisable that if your pressure is below 50 or above 70 the water pressure regulator should be changed just to be safe.
