Water Pressure Risks
The PRV or Pressure Regulator Valve is a common piece of equipment at home that is often overlooked. It’s the device responsible for controlling your homes water pressure. The pressure regulator has an important job – ensure the water pressure is just right, not too low and not too high. You will have a number of problems throughout the day if water pressure is not right.
Low water pressure can have an impact on taking a shower, cleaning your dishes, washing your clothes and many other possible problems.
On the other hand, high water pressure can cause other pipe related problems. It can lead to pipe damage, pipe joint damage or leaking pipes. Your fixtures and equipment can also sustain premature wear and tear because of this. Moreover, high pressure can lead to wasted water.
To ensure your PRV controls your water pressure properly, Diamondback Plumbing can help you inspect, repair, replace or install a new pressure regulator valve if necessary.
Using a water-pressure gauge you bought from a local hardware store is great for testing the PRV. However, you might still need help from an expert to inspect it. Through inspection, we can help ensure that your pressure regulator valve continues to work efficiently.
You need regular PRV inspection and maintenance to catch issues before they become serious and costly. By scheduling a regular inspection or maintenance with Diamondback Plumbing, you can make your life much easier.
We can also perform an inspection to determine if your water pressure is normal or if you’re going to need to install a Pressure Regulator Valve. If your normal water pressure is above 75 psi, it means you will need a pressure regulator valve installed.
Diamondback Plumbing can help install a high-quality PRV for you. Rest assured that the installation of a pressure regulator valve is not too expensive. All our services are affordably priced and performed by a highly-trained technician. You can have the peace of mind that your home is up to code by having a PRV installed in your home.

PRV Life Span & Maintenance
Just like with any other valve, a PRV also has a limited lifespan. How long it serves you depend on a number of different factors. This includes the quality of the equipment, the stress pressure, and the usage. A PRV’s average lifespan is around 7 to 12 years.
One thing you should remember about PRV is it easily sustains damage. Most of the time, your home begins having pressure issues after just a few years of installation. The problems become worse with the lack of regular maintenance. It is important to have the pressure regulator checked and maintenanced every few years.
