Have You Checked The Plumbing Pressure In Your McDowell Mounatin Ranch Home?
Do you need a presure reducing valve on your home?
The plumbing pressure in your McDowell Mountain Ranch Home matters.
A pressure reducing valve, (PRV) is a great way to protect the plumbing in your home when you live in a high water pressure zone. We at Big J plumbing support the use of a PRV because if can also help to save water. Lower pressure means less water coming out of fixtures for one thing but it may also protect your plumbing from damage or breaks causing wasteful leaks and costly repair.
There are many brands available but the design is pretty common to all. They are typically a diaphragm controlled valve. Look for a high quality product from one of the American manufacturers that have American Water Works Association and / or U.L. approval ratings indicated. These valves are not a maintenance free device and over time the rubber parts will start to deteriorate and will need to be replaced, so look for a product for which repair kits are available.
These devices are usually installed where the water service enters the home after the main shut off valve. If you live in an area with freezing temperatures, make sure it is protected. Be sure to buy a device that is the same size as your water service piping and install it according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. It is recommended to consult BigJPlumbing.com he is an experienced plumber who can assess the piping in your home and recommend what pressure will be best to use. The pressure settings are made with adjustable controls on the outside of the devices.
