A water pressure regulator valve is a device that is engineered to control the water pressure in your home. Most pipes can comfortably support water pressure of about 80 psi (pounds per square inch), and can go brief periods where the pressure is much higher. The pipes in your house are to withstand water pressure ratings between 100 – 150 psi for a brief period of time. However, you may begin to notice plumbing problems if the water pressure in your home is continuously above 80 psi. Here are 3 reasons to install a pressure reducer valve in your house.
Expands the Lifespan of Your Plumbing Fixtures & Pipes
A water pressure regulator valve will protect your pipes, fixtures, and shower heads from the devastating effects of high water pressure. This will help expand the lifespan of your plumbing fixtures, appliances, and system. Since you won’t have to worry about fixing the sinks or fixtures in your home, you can allocate that money towards renovations or vacations with family.
Eliminates Damage From Pipe Bursts
High water pressure increases the risk of a pipe breach throughout the year, but in the winter, those odds get ever worse. When water freezes in the winter, it may expand and cause your pipes to burst. To avoid a costly water line repair, we recommend investing in a water pressure regulator valve for your house,
Saves Money on Water
When the water pressure in your home is too high, more of it will be wasted while you are washing the dishes or taking a shower. A water pressure reducing valve will cut down on wasted water and save you some money on your monthly bills.
