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