Water Pressure Regulators
: Water Pressure Regulators
A water pressure regulator is a control valve that reduces the water pressure in your home and business, to a usable and safe level, for daily use.
A household water pressure regulator reduces the water pressure from the water main to a pressure that is usable for your home and business. Low pressure from one of the faucets in your home may be due to mineral deposits from hard water. Hard water can clog the aerators on faucets and it also prevents pressure surges from the household plumbing from the public main. High water pressure can result in dripping faucets and water pipes, and it can damage appliances. Water pressure is measured in pounds per square inch (PSI). Normal water pressure is typically between 30 and 80 PSI.
