Water Regulator

Water pressure regulators are an essential component of almost every building and residence on the public water supply.

water regulator

Water pressure regulators are mounted inline on the incoming water supply and may be exposed or buried. Water pressure regulators control both the water pressure and the flow rate of the incoming water supply. A damaged or worn out pressure regulator can result in destructively high water pressure in the building or residence.

Common indicators of a malfunctioning water pressure regulator:

  • high/low water pressure
  • high/low water flow
  • surging water
  • banging pipes
  • vibrating pipes
  • leaking toilet fill valves
  • leaking hot water relief valves
  • broken pipes and leaking faucets

You may or may not notice the symptoms listed and these symptoms may be related to other plumbing system problems.

The life expectancy of a water pressure regulator is between 10 and 15 years. However, you will see a regulator malfunction at 3 years and you will see a regulator still working at 20 years old. Manufacturers recommend swapping the valve every 5 years and most plumbing contractors would suggest you change the valve every 7-10 years. The operation of a regulator is basically the action of a spring and rubber gasket. After open and closing thousands of times, it eventually wears out. Call us at Bevery Services today to test or replace your water regulator!
