Fountain Hills Water Pressure Regulator
What is a Water Pressure Regulator?Frequently referred to as, water pressure reducing valves (PRV); they are compact, inexpensive devices that carry out two functions. First, they automatically reduce the high incoming water pressure from the city mains to provide a lower, more functional pressure for distribution into your Fountain Hills home. Second, they "regulate" by sustaining a set pressure in the home – making certain that the home piping and appliances operate under a safe, more moderate, but satisfactory pressure.
What is Water Pressure?When a fixture in your Fountain Hills home is turned on and water flows, it is because the water is "pushed." Pressure creates this "push". The speed at which water flows from the opened outlet depends on the amount of "push" or pressure, which exists at that time in the system. So the higher the pressure, the stronger the "push" behind the water.
Do Water Pressure Regulators save on maintenance & repairs to my Fountain Hills, home?By having your appliances work under a lower pressure, their life expectancy will be much longer. Use of lower pressure will also cut down on service calls
caused by problems with dishwashers and clothes washers, leaky water heaters, leaking water pipes and the possible water damage which could result if a flood occurs. This would also include your Fountain Hills Water Softener and Filtration equipment.
As with any mechanical device, you want to periodically check the operation of your water pressure regulator to verify it is working properly. Contact Isley’s Home Service, we can quickly and correctly test your water pressure. Our responsive staff will send a knowledgeable technician to your Fountain Hills home to measure your water pressure.
High Water Pressure could be hazardous to your Fountain Hills, AZ home.High water pressure can produce stress in the plumbing system of your Fountain Hills, AZ home or business and potentially cause water heaters to leak, banging water pipes, dripping faucets, excessive dishwasher and washing machine noise and breakdown, along with leaking water pipes. For that reason, water flowing at a rate in excess of that necessary to satisfy normal fixture or appliance demands becomes damaging, wasteful and reduces the life expectancy of equipment in the system. More importantly, high water pressure can add to the cost of water and energy bills.
Water pressure regulators are a necessary component of almost every Fountain Hills home or commercial building on the city water supply. Water pressure varies between 50 psi and 100 psi in the Fountain Hills area depending on the time of day and area in which you live. You might experience higher pressure during off-peak time or lower pressure during peak demand.
