How Excess Pressure Can Damage Your Home

Excess water pressure can significantly damage your home’s plumbing system and appliances over time. The effects of high water pressure can be far-reaching, from leaky pipes and fixtures to reduced appliance lifespans. Here are some of the most common issues caused by trapped pressure:

  • Leaky pipes and fixtures: High water pressure can cause seals and connections to fail, resulting in leaks around faucets, toilets, and pipe joints.
  • Appliance damage: Appliances like washing machines, dishwashers, and water heaters are designed to operate within a specific pressure range. Trapped pressure can damage internal components and shorten the lifespan of these appliances.
  • Pipe bursts: In extreme cases, high water pressure can cause pipes to burst, leading to significant water damage and costly repairs.
  • Reduced efficiency: High water pressure can affect the performance of fixtures like showerheads and faucets, leading to reduced power and increased water usage.

The Role of Pressure Reducing Valves

Pressure reducing valves, also called pressure relief valves, are essential components of any well-functioning plumbing system. These small but mighty devices play an essential role in regulating water pressure, protecting your home from the potential dangers of excess pressure, and managing the safety of your plumbing system. The benefits of having properly functioning pressure relief valves include:

  • Regulates water pressure: Pressure relief valves maintain safe and consistent water pressure throughout your plumbing system.
  • Protects your home from damage: Relief valves prevent leaks, pipe bursts, and other forms of water damage by releasing excess pressure. Learn more about preventing water damage on our blog.
  • System safety: Pressure reducing valves are designed to automatically release water if the pressure or temperature exceeds a certain threshold, preventing dangerous situations like explosions or scalding.
  • Extends the life of your appliances: Proper water pressure regulation helps protect appliances like washing machines, dishwashers, and water heaters from premature wear and tear.
  • Improves plumbing system: When water pressure is kept within the optimal range, your plumbing system can operate more efficiently, saving water and energy.
  • Provides peace of mind: With properly functioning pressure relief valves, you can have confidence that your home is protected from the potential hazards of high water pressure and excessive temperature.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the ideal water pressure for a home?

The ideal water pressure for a residential plumbing system falls between 40 and 80 PSI. This range provides sufficient pressure for everyday tasks while minimizing the risk of leaks and damage to pipes and appliances.

How often should I have my water pressure checked?

It’s a good idea to check your water pressure every few years, or sooner if you notice any signs of high pressure or leaks. Regular inspections can help catch potential problems early and prevent more extensive damage down the line.

Where is the pressure reducing valve located?

if you have a water pressure reducing valve it will usually be found right after the main shut-off valve, which is located where the main water line enters the house.

How do I check my home’s water pressure?

While we advise getting your water pressure tested as part of regular, comprehensive plumbing system inspections, you can easily check your home’s water pressure yourself by using a pressure gauge with an adapter hooked right to your garden hose.

Can I adjust my water pressure myself?

While it is possible to adjust your water pressure yourself, it is generally recommended that a professional plumber handle this task. Improper adjustments can lead to further issues and potentially damage to your plumbing system.
