Calling all plumbers

Can anyone tell me where to dial down my water pressure? It's waaaaaaay too high at 110 PSI. I'm waiting for my CPVC pipe joints to bust open!



The only other water related anything is a twist valve to turn it off to the house.

I don't think you can turn down the pressure at the meter. But that is one old arse water meter!! But you could just turn the valve about half way closed. That would work for ya...but the pressure is from the water main. Call city hall and complaign!!

Follow your water line from meter to house, most times pressure reducing valve is located right where water line goes into house
If you live on a hill you might not have pressure reducing valve. City has to supply enough water pressure to make it up hills. Those who donot live on hills have to have pressure reduced at house.
Normal water pressure used inside house runs about 65 PSI.
