Watts Workshop Quickfix
Hi, I’m Bob. Today we are going to talk about how to adjust the downstream pressure on a water pressure reducing valve. One of the key components of a water pressure is to understand what pressure is. It’s normally designated as the push of water going through the supply pipes to your homes. Typically, municipalities have a high water pressure in their pipe of anywhere from 150 to 200 PSI, that is meet their requirements which are typically for fire fighting equipment, high rise buildings are compensated for differentiation and elevations. For most homes, this high water pressure is not needed or desired. The installation of water pressure reducing valve like this one here; lowers the pressure to a sensible level to protect piping and appliances as well as controlled water consumption. Residential pressure reducing valves are factory set at 50 PSI. To properly adjust downstream pressure on a water pressure reducing valve, the downstream gauge is required. This gauge shows the incoming municipal supply pressure, a 120 PSI. In this gauge, shows the downstream pressure at 50 PSI.
Procedure to Raise the Downstream Pressure
To raise the downstream pressure; first loosen the lock knob, next, turn the adjusting screw clockwise to the desired pressure level as indicated on the downstream gauge.
Procedure to Lower the Downstream Pressure
To lower the downstream pressure; loosen the lock knob, next turn the adjusting screw counter clockwise to the desired pressure level as indicated on the downstream gauge.
Completing the Adjustment
When adjustments are complete, be sure to tighten the lock knob.
