Water pressure regulators (also known as pressure reducing valves) are designed to take the high pressure water that’s coming into the home or business from the city water service and lower it to a level that’s more suitable for the plumbing system. Here in San Diego, our city’s water pressure runs high, which is why a properly working water pressure regulator is especially important for residents and business owners in the area.
When water pressure regulators fail, the high pressure water coming in can cause toilets to run, faucets to drip, and pipes to burst. Not only that, but water pressure higher than 80PSI can cause damage to and shorten the life of your appliances. Last time we checked, water heaters, refrigerators, and dish washers were expensive! Protect them by making sure your water pressure regulator is working properly. You can either test it yourself or leave it to one of the licensed plumbers here at Steele Plumbing.
We inspect, test, repair, and replace water pressure regulators, so whether yours is causing low water pressure or failing to lower the high water pressure of the incoming water, we can help.
