Did you know?

The water pressure in your plumbing system is at least 65 psi. That’s a lot of pressure just looking for a way out!

Water pressure regulators control both the water pressure and the flow rate of the incoming water supply. A damaged or worn out pressure regulator can result in destructively high water pressure in the building.

Use this checklist to determine if your property has dangerously high water pressure:

• banging pipes
• excessive usage
• high water flow
• leaking faucets
• leaking hot water relief valves
• leaking pipes in walls
• leaking shower valves
• leaking stops & supply lines
• leaking toilet fill valves
• recurring leaks
• surging water
• under slab leaks
• vibrating pipes

You may not even notice these symptoms immediately. In fact, water pressure of any kind is inherently searching for an escape. By noticing the symptoms of system weaknesses, you can prevent a destructive flood on your property. Taking a few minutes to make repairs could save you days of headache and clean-up.
