|In response to Re: Does 90 psi require a pressure reducing valve?|
: : I have 90 psi pressure measured in my basement. According to the town and the water company I dont need a pressure reducing valve at that pressure (I did not think to ask what pressure I would need one).
: : I'm somewhat surprised by this because they are pretty particular about sprkinler systems (RPP valves are required as is a yearly test by the water company)
: : Does that seem too high? Am I going to have long term damage to my appliances with 90 psi?
: : Thanks,
: Sylvan, as a third year engineering student, I have to commend you for stating why.
: I see a lot of posters give code but do not go into details and sometimes it is important to explain the why not only how.
: Thank you and I did recalculate your numbers and your correct as if you didn't know. :-)
Thank you for the hug dear lady.
I hated as a kid being told "because I said so" I liked to know Why.
Saying it is contrary code says nothing as not all codes agree.
Thank you for the hug dear lady. Thanks darlin.
