If you have high pressure, then the only thing a PRV will do is slow down the amount of water that leaks out of the pinholes. They are not being caused by pressure.

: My area in Montgomery County, MD has had an epidemic of pinholes since our water authority replaced the water mains and flushed some chemical into the system. Our plumber mentioned a pressure regulator as an alternative to replacing the pipes. We are in a ranch house with no basement. The pipes enter by the kitchen, then cross the house in the attic.
: The idea is the corrosive gunk and the high pressure combine to drill into weak parts of the pipe to form the pinholes.
: A pressure regulator would reduce the process.
: Does this make sense?
