High Water Pressure
Posted by Steve on May 25, 2004 at 12:32:38:
I have a 60 year old house at the bottom of a hill with very high water pressure. Water was coming out of the piping for the tpr valve on my hot water heater. I turned down the temp. and almost completely closed the main shutoff valve to slow the pressure down but I'm not sure if it was wise to do that. I've heard of pressure reducing valves, expansion tanks on the hot water heater, etc. but was wondering what is the proper fix to my high water pressure.
