high water pressure
Posted by Tom on September 27, 1999 at 23:37:51:
I live in a mobile home park where water pressure sometimes exceeds 100 psi. I've been told I need to install a pressure reducing valve to protect the plumbing in the home. The home installation guide that came with my home said water pressure should not exceed 80 psi.

The house is connected from the water meter to a main cut-off under the house by what looks like a 1" black plastic flexible pipe.

My question is, if I do this myself, should the pressure reducing valve be after the main cut-off or before it and if it should be before it, can I just cut the plastic pipe and clamp it in the gap I made for the cut?

Thanks,
Tom
