Pressure Reducing Valves (PRVs) in Plumbing: Why You Need to Check Your Water Pressure Twice a Year

Water pressure is a crucial aspect of any plumbing system. Too much pressure can lead to leaks, pipe damage, and wasted water, while too little pressure can cause inconvenience in daily usage. That’s where Pressure Reducing Valves (PRVs) come into play, and why checking your water pressure regularly is essential.

At Integrity Drain Cleaning and Plumbing, we understand the importance of maintaining optimal water pressure, and we’re here to help you every step of the way.

What Are Pressure Reducing Valves?

PRVs are devices installed in water supply systems to reduce and stabilize the water pressure. They ensure that the water pressure within your plumbing system stays within a safe range, protecting your pipes and fixtures from potential damage.

Why Check Water Pressure Twice a Year?

Prevent Damage: If your PRV fails, high water pressure can damage anything in your plumbing system – from toilets, showers, faucets, water heater, pipes and more. Checking your water pressure twice a year ensure that your plumbing  system is protected. High water pressure can cause wear and tear on your plumbing system, leading to leaks and potential water damage.
Save Money: By maintaining optimal water pressure, you can reduce water waste and save on your utility bills.
Enhance Comfort: Proper water pressure ensures that your showers, faucets, and appliances operate efficiently, enhancing your daily comfort.
