Plumbing and laundry Return to table of contents
Water pressure (psi): 120 psi
Location of main water shut-off valve: in front of the house
Location of main water meter: on the street
Water service: Public
Service pipe material: Copper
Supply pipe material: Copper
12) The water supply pressure is greater than 80 psi. Pressures above 80 psi may void warranties for some appliances such as water heaters or washing machines. Flexible supply lines to washing machines are more likely to burst with higher pressures. Typically the pressure cannot be regulated at the water meter. Recommend having a qualified plumber evaluate and make modifications to reduce the pressure below 80 psi. Installing a pressure reducing valve on the main service pipe is a common solution to this problem. If one exists, then it should be adjusted for lower pressures.
