How do I know if I have high water pressure?

Water Pressure Regulator
  • Do you hear a “hammering” sound coming from your plumbing pipes?
  • Does the force of the water coming out of the faucets seem too powerful?
  • Have the gaskets & seals ruptured in your plumbing fixtures quite frequently?
All these are indications that you may have high water pressure in your Valley home. Our experienced plumbing technicians can quickly and accurately test your home’s water pressure to see if you need a water pressure regulator valve installed on your home.

What is water pressure?

Water pressure is the “force of pressure” that must be obtained to “push” the water through an open tap. The continuous flow of water through a plumbing system is the effect of water pressure. Water pressure can fluctuate considerably throughout the Phoenix-Metro area.

What is considered high water pressure?

High water pressure, which is commonly considered anything above 80 PSI, can be destructive. This can cause leaky water pipes, drippy faucets, eroded faucet washers, banging pipes and in some cases, high pressure can burst pipes and supply lines which could result in a flooded Valley home or business. Most city codes require a water pressure regulator valve to be installed on any Valley residence or business with water pressure in excess of 80 PSI. Most manufacturers of water heaters, dishwashers, water softeners or other water use appliances, recommend the pressure to be below 80 PSI. If damage is caused to the appliance due to excessive water pressure, this may void your warranty.

What is a water pressure regulator?

Water Pressure Regulator A water pressure regulator is a plumbing safety device designed to prevent water pressure from climbing too high while also ensuring that the pressure remains high enough to maintain a consistent flow from faucets, taps, and shower heads. Typically, your water pressure regulator would be installed at your water entry to the home, regulating the water to the interior of your home and the irrigation system.

How do regulators save on water?

1/3 less water flows at 50 PSI than at 100 PSI. Consequently, when you reduce your water supply pressure to a more moderate pressure of 50 psi, you can look forward to conserving much of the water that was previously wasted. This will be reflected on your water bills.

Do Regulators save on maintenance?

When your water pressure regulator is well maintained the water flow into your Valley home or business you will save on the deterioration of all your fixtures, water appliances and piping. Having water pressure under lower pressure extends life expectancy of appliances and pipes and will cut back on service calls caused by avoidable pressure.
