I live in a house that was built in 2006. I bought it new. The entire time we have lived there, it has always had what I would describe as low water pressure. For example, when you turn on the hose outside, you get a burst of water at first and then it levels off and actually gets pretty low. I have just lived with it because I felt that this was normal in our neighborhood. Recently, I have visited some neighbors and found that they had much better pressure. I had someone adjust the PRV, but really nothing has gotten much better. Is this a problem with the PRV or something else ? I contacted a plumber and was told that it was probably bad and needed to be replaced and would cost $200+cost of visit. I do not want to do this until I get some more options or advice. Also, if it does need replacement, is this something that a novice can do with proper instructions or should I let a pro do it ??
No announcement yet.
Issue with PRV ???
