Check water pressure regulators
Elevated water pressure in the plumbing can be caused by a bad water pressure regulator. High pressure causes a pipe burst or supply line break. This is a recipe for disaster.
Be sure to anually have a plumber check you water pressure regulator or there is a tool kit at your local hardware store if you want to check it yourself. The water pressure regulator is typically located below the water/hose bib outside, next to the foundation of the home. Water pressure should be between 35 and 65 PSI (pounds per square inch). The regulator is a control valve that reduces the water pressure in your home or business to a usable and safe level for daily use. Save your home from an unnecessary water loss by taking the precautions of maintaining the water pressure in your home or business.
