    I'm in the process of re-plumbing my home. As part of this, I'm adding a new PRV. I'll be splitting off the outdoor faucets near the meter/PRV. I see some advantages in splitting before for higher pressures outdoors in washing. My pressure currently measures about 85 PSI. Should I split off before the PRV or after?
