    Water still running even though valve is closed

    We had a slab leak repaired a few months back. It is leaking again. The leak is from a hot water line in the kitchen. We found our floor became hot again. The floor was reopened to verify the leak. We shut off the water at the hot water tank (valve) and allowed the lines to drain. Its been...

    House water pressure via expansion tank

    I currently do not have a pressure gauge that fits an outdoor bib but I do have a tire pressure gauge. If I check the pressure at the schrader valve assuming the system is pressurized, will that give me the water pressure for the house?

    Zurn 1-1/14 inch Water Pressure Regulator

    My home has a 1-1/4 inch Zurn Wilkins water pressure regulator that sits on top of the main incoming water line. I had a plumber out to do some work and he tested my home PSI at about 95. He recommended a new unit and quoted a price at $500. I wanted to get a few bids and verify the situation so...

    Pressure Tank/Switch Questions

    Hi all! We recently bought a new, two-story house and were not happy with the water 'pressure', or flow rate(I've been reading and educating myself ;)), especially in the second floor master bath. We just upgraded from a 20-something gal tank with a 30/50 switch to an 86 gal tank with a 40/60...

    Water pressure has significantly reduced after repair to 1/2 PEX

    I put in a niche in our shower, accidentally nicked the PEX tubing. So I bought the fittings and the sharkbite clamps and fixed it. It doesn't leak but the pressure is significantly lower . I'm stumped and can't figure out what I did, any trouble shooting ideas?

    Sink Draining / Water Pressure / Bathroom Sink

    Hello! Need help with a bathroom sink. It was clogged really bad and I was able to unclog it. Even when unclogged the water still fills up the sink faster than it can drain. The water pressure is very good. The sink seems to be draining well, but it's just too much water for the size of the...

    Hi, I’m experiencing water pressure related issues in a new house I just moved into. If the landscaping sprinklers are running the water pressure out of the shower is very little. For starters the house’s plumbing is cpvc rated to 100 psi. There is a Watts pressure regulator valve on the...

    Water pressure causing fridge to act up

    We seem to have some sort of water pressure issue in our pipes. Our fridge water dispenser works find 80% of the time and then sometimes, it’ll stop dispensing and make a loud, grinding sound. In those moments, if we turn on our facet in the kitchen, I can tell there’s a lot of water pressure in...

    High static pressure, Low flow and low running pressure

    Hi, I recently purchased an older home (1974) that is on county water. Since moving in, we have had fairly low pressure when using any faucet or toilet.

    After toilet flush, water pressure diminishes a lot...

    After toilet flushes, the water pressure in the sink diminishes a lot. This did not used to happen. What could be causing this? I did have a Fleck sx2510 water softener installed 2 years ago, in February 2017.
