Re: Is Reducing Your Water Pressure Bad?

In response to Re: Is Reducing Your Water Pressure Bad?
: I'm on city water and I had a PRV installed because the water pressure was very high. After the PRV was installed, valves in my house still make a clunk noise when they are shut off (faucets, ice maker, washing machine, etc.). I thought the pressure might still be too high, so today I put a pressure gauge on an outlet and it read 55 psi. I think this is pretty normal. Would it hurt anything if I dropped it down 10-15 psi? I don't know if ther would be any hazard to my boiler or heating system or anything else I can't think of. Thanks for your help!

Reply:
The boiler/heating system will not be effected by lowering the pressure down on the main water PRV. HW heating boilers have their own water pressure regulators installed on the feed lines.
Good Luck. e-plumber
