What Is a Pressure-Reducing Valve?

Water pressure is measured in psi or pounds per square inch. If your home’s water pressure is at 70 to 80 psi, it can damage your water supply pipes, fixtures, and plumbing appliances.

A pressure-reducing valve is the solution to high water pressure, regulating the force of water flowing through your pipes to a safe and manageable level.

A pressure-reducing valve is installed near your water shut-off valve to regulate your water supply before it’s dispersed through your pipes.

Frequently Asked Questions

You’ll need a pressure gauge. Start by screwing the pressure gauge onto the faucet or hose bib. Then, turn on the tap. The pressure gauge will measure your water’s psi.

The ideal water pressure for a plumbing system is between 50 and 60 psi to reduce the risk of damage to your plumbing pipes.

High water pressure is often the source of leaks and damage to plumbing systems. Installing a pressure-reducing valve allows you to control your water supply but still have great water pressure for baths, showers, and other uses.

What Our Clients Are Saying
testimonial_image The tech was at my home less than 10 minutes and gone within 20 minutes due to having my A/C up and running. I really appreciate his response to my home and working with my son due to me being out of town, but we spoke on the phone.
