Is My Water Under Too Much Pressure?
Is your plumbing system under too much pressure? High water pressure can cause damage to pipes, fittings, and fixtures, and can also increase water usage and utility bills. You may need a water pressure regulator valve if the water pressure in your plumbing system is too high. A water pressure regulator valve works by reducing the incoming water pressure to a safe and consistent level that is suitable for your specific plumbing system.
Some of the signs that you may need a water pressure regulator valve include:
Noisy pipes: If you hear banging, rattling, or other unusual noises coming from your plumbing system, it may be a sign that the water pressure is too high.
Leaking faucets or toilets: High water pressure can cause faucets and toilets to leak or drip, which can waste water and increase your water bills.
Damage to appliances and fixtures: High water pressure can cause damage to appliances and fixtures, such as washing machines, dishwashers, and water heaters, reducing their lifespan and requiring costly repairs.
Uneven water pressure: If some areas of your home have higher water pressure than others, it may be a sign that you need a water pressure regulator valve.
