WATER PRESSURE PROBLEMS
Occasionally, the pressure regulator valve (PRV) on the water main in the street fails and allows the main line pressure past the meter and into your service line or house plumbing. It is recommended that each customer install a regulator (PRV) on his/her side of the meter to prevent potential damage to customer's property, if pressure exceeds 80 psi per building code. You might want to install the PRV near your water heater so the outside faucet has full pressure for washing the car or fighting a small brush fire during an emergency, the inside plumbing is then protected by the PRV. An unusually strong burst of water when the faucet is turned on or fluctuations in pressure while the water is running are both possible indications of a regulator problem. A common symptom of high pressure is a water heater temperature and pressure valve (T&P valve) which will not seat and leaks a little or a lot. Remember that the plumbing code requires the T&P valve overflow be plumber to an outside drain and never threaded or capped; this prevents unexpected water damage to your floors and furnishings. Low pressure can be caused by particle buildup in the screen which restricts flow through the regulator. When the pressure is excessively low sometimes water cannot be used at two faucets at the same time. A leak or break in your own service line may also reduce the pressure inside your house. You can rule out a leak by checking your meter; check to see if the meter is moving when you are not using water. Please view the "Leaks" tab for help on leak detection and how to read your meter.
