In response to Re: Pressure regulating valve
The first thing to do is get a different plumber, preferably an honest one. 80 spi is not excessive and if the main pressure is higher than that then the PRV is working properly. Excessive pressure would not make the spigot continue to run, so you need to have the spigot repaired or replaced.

: At My outside pressure regulating valve , a plumber measured the pressure to be 80 psi. He suggested that I change the whole system( pressure valve, connector, pipe, sppigot.) He wants 500 USD for it. What should I do, it seemed to be too much. The only symptom I see so far, is that at the spigot, the water kept on running even when I close the spigot.
