Were do you drawl the line ? When ever I make a connection to the water distribution system I check the pressure and if it reads over 80 psi I decline to do any work until the excess pressure is corrected with a pressure reducing valve . This go s for any one that calls me or that Lowe's sends me to. I now have a job that I refused to do were the pressure was at 90 psi the people claimed that they called a plumbing inspector and were told that it was not a problem . Now the code states that static pressure in a house is not to exceed 80 psi . and when I checked it the time was around 12:00 p.m. I wonder what it is around 2:30 am when no water is being used in that area? Lowe's is now sending another guy behind me who I guess may not care . I have since called a inspector that I call from time to time and he told me to inform them that 90 psi is only allowed for high rise buildings and not homes. How would you handle this ?
