How would I install this in between 3/4 inch cpvc pipe?? Would there be a likelihood of failure using it in cpvc?

Asked by: chris
I'm not a professional plumber, so for what it's worth, you would need a stiffener to go inside your cpvc pipe. Instructions are included with the valve.

3/4 in. Brass MPT x FTP Pressure Reducing Valve is rated 2.1 out of 5 by 14.

I have a pressure gauge installed on the water heater, and I can adjust the regulator, and measure the resulting pressure changes. The negatives: It resonates internally and makes the pipes HOWL when water flows. There is vibration coming from the diaphragm that I can feel. Clamping the pipes does not stop it. Adjusting the pressure in the expansion tank does not stop it. The only way I have found to mute the noise is increasing the pressure to > 60 PSI, but that starts to defeat the purpose of a pressure regulator. Wasted money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Easy replacement after First one failed after only 20 months Disappointed that the first one failed so quickly. Pipes started to vibrate near one toilet. At first I investigated all other plumbing devices and pipes. Just didn't think the PRV could be the problem because it was so new. Vibrations got worse. Decided to go with same model because of ease of installation. Hope it lasts longer.

Bought this LFN45B-M1 valve to replace a discontinued N35B valve because it could be installed without alterations. The reviews I read on this valve were not that great, but the reviews for the 1" version were good. The installation is easily done. The first valve I purchased leaked at the junction of the plastic spring cage and the valve body. The leak was probably from the diaphragm not sealing. l took it back and got a second valve. It did not leak, but I now have been chasing strange vibration noise or a humming sound coming from my pipes. Whether this noise is being caused by the valve, I cannot be certain, but I did not have the noise before, and I can feel the pipe vibrate just after the valve. Therefore, I don't feel qualified to be able to recommend this valve or not. I just want to report my experience with the valve.

Valve worked fine but be aware that it only comes with one fitting and one O-ring. You will need another O-ring as well, if you are using this for a replacement valve, as I did. Not sure the size of the O-ring. I already had one on hand from previous projects. I used this to replace a Watts N35B pressure valve.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Noisy - Heard Throughout House This unit oscillates internally, producing about a 400 Hz tone which is carried by the water piping and heard throughout the house. I wrote to Watts and they wrote me back saying that this whole N45B series of regulators has too small an orifice for normal home usage. It is meant for much smaller flow rates. Watts wrote, "The orifice opening is too small, we recommend the standard LF25AUB, or LF U5B higher capacity valves. They offer a larger flow opening with no noise." This valve is not suitable at all for home usage. Home Depot should not even offer it for sale.
