In response to Re: Low water pressure - Problem Solved
Had a plumber replace the pressure control valve
which drops the 90psi pressure from the main down to
55psi(recommended by our water district) for the
house. Problem solved. We now have better water
pressure than we have ever had (5 years owning the
house). He said the noises I was hearing were not
air in the lines, but rather the valve failing.
It was when the noises became really bad I decided
to bleed out the air. This coincided with the valve
giving up the ghost. I basically wasted a weekend
chasing the wrong ghost. $340 later (ouch) and a
little wiser, I hope.
