In response to Re: Water Pressure Regulating Valve - HELP!
: : Two weeks ago, the water pressure in our house increased significantly. None of my neighbors noticed any increase in pressure. I tried to adjust the pressure by tightening the set screw on the Honeywell Braukmann D07 Pressure Regulator Valve. We are connected to city water.
: : My questions:
: : 1) How do I stop the leaking from around the set screw? I have tightened the locking nut at tight as possible, but there is a steady drip. I have turned off the water to our house because the drip is too much.

: : 2) What would cause the sudden change in pressure increase from the regulator? Is it broken?

: : 3) Should I replace the Pressure Regulating Valve?

: : Thanks.
: : John
The fact that it is leaking around the adjustment bolt indicates a torn diaphram. Replace the regulator to correct the problem.
