water pressure reducer- needed?
Posted by Georgia on October 28, 2001 at 14:47:50:
We bought a new house 6 years ago. Since then we have replaced 1 toilet, a dishwasher motor, 4 faucets, hot water heater pump, and shower head. The last repairman told us we do not have a pressure reducer and suggested we have the water pressure tested. He thought we might have a pressure problem since we live on the Town line, on a lake. He told us that it was a building code (in Massachusetts) that a pressure reducer had to be installed if the pressure was above a certain amount.
1 How do I find the pressure?
2 Is there such a plumbing code that the builder should have followed?
