Water pressure regulators work to ensure that you are receiving the right amount of water in your residence. They are a plumbing safety feature designed to prevent water pressure from climbing too high, while ensuring the pressure remains high enough to provide consistent flow from shower heads, faucets and taps. These devices are often located near your water main on the outside of your residence.
Pressure regulators extend the life of plumbing systems and fixtures. In addition, per the Uniform Plumbing Code, every property must have a properly installed water pressure regulator. Emory Plumbing carries a variety of pressure regulators in most common sizes and styles to facilitate efficient installation. Due to the numerous negative effects associated with a faulty system, it is important to make sure that your pressure regulator is working properly. Pressure that is too high can result in eroded washers, leaks, banging pipes and even explosions, in extreme circumstances. If you suspect that your pressure regulator is not working properly, it is recommended to have an experienced plumber to check its effectiveness for you. This could help to avoid costly repairs in the future.
