In response to Low water pressure
: : Hi;

: : I just had someone from the water department out because parts of the house have little (no) water pressure. He checked the PRV out at the meter and cleaned it, but it didn't help. He then stated that the problem was probably in the PRV in the house.

: : Help (please). What does a PRV look like, how does it work and where can I find it?

: Tom,
: It should be on the incoming water.
: Where it comes in the house
: or at the water meter.
: I've seen them both places.


When I flush a toilet, the waterflow in the kitchen or in the masterbath shower is considerably reduced. Same if I reverse the location. I suspect I have too low pressure from the street meter side???
Thanks for any hints!
