Pressure Regulators

The truth is, high water pressure is anything but great. Water pressure causes a variety of plumbing problems to develop prematurely, from burst pipes to worn out fill valves, dripping faucets to ruptured water heaters. Pressure regulating valves, or PRVs, ensure water pressure is at a safe level for your household’s plumbing in order to prevent damage caused by high pressure. You should not attempt to fix this issue on your own, so contact IGD Plumbing & Air for help!
The ideal pressure is 60 pounds per square inch (60 PSI), but pressure over 80 pounds per square inch (80 PSI) can cause problems. The manufacturers of water heaters advise that pressures exceeding 80 PSI can cause premature wear and tear on your tank. Unusual noises in the plumbing system and problems with your plumbing system may indicate high pressure. Among other problems, burst pipes, leaks, flooding, and other problems are associated with this problem. Here’s how you can tell:
