An Ounce of Prevention

I heard of a CR Home Owner experiancing a flooded home because of a burst pipe caused by a faulty Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV).

My pressure was a dangeroulsy high 90 psi. After replacing the PRV and the mainshut-off valve (which was also defective) all is well.

The normal pressure regulated by the PRV in the home is about 60 psi. Becasue of the age of the homes and mineral content in the water, it could lead to a failure of the valve.  It may be a good idea to also have yours checked especially if you notice appliances making funny noises when using water.

Thank You John Lambert for the Heads-Up!
