Customer Questions & Answers

how do you tell the size difference in the valves

Asked by: robert
The pressure reducing valve ties into your main water line coming into your home, ideally just above the shut off valve.

Which direction should I turn the bolt on top to decrease pressure??

Asked by: Lenzie
There is a "limiter" nut that is below the pressure bolt. Screw that nut as close to the bolt head as possible if you want 75psi,then turn the entire bolt head clockwise for more pressure, counterclockwise for less.

How do you increase water pressure

Asked by: Golfer
Turning the bolt head on the top of the dome will increase the pressure if turned one way and decrease the pressure if turned the other.

Customer Reviews

1 in. No Lead Brass Water Pressure Reducing Valve is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does Not Meet Spec The problem with this valve is a pressure drop. According to spec provided by company, with 3 gpm, flow, pressure should not drop more than 2-3 PSI, in reality it drops 7-10 PSI. After speaking with Zurn-Wilkins customer service and Engineer, they confirmed, this valve for home installation has pressure drop above spec and above industry standard. See pictures. Zurn Engineer recommended 70XL model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, especially replacing a same-size regulator My 30-year-old Wilkins Model 70 regulator was leaking a stream. Unlike the other 1" Wilkins valves at Home Depot, this one is the same length so it fit in without new piping, Also, the input copper pipe is a sweat fitting to the union; I was able to keep the existing union input and nut so I did not need to add a sweat-to-Male Pipe threaded fitting. I used silicone plumber's grease liberally so If I need to adjust something it is apt to come apart. For example, I needed to remove the adjustment bolt to screw the regulator onto the existing output pipe and coated the galvanized steel bolt before reinstalling it. I will note that the nut inside the housing is also galvanized (the bolt in my old valve worked but some threads were eroded), but the adjustment bolt locknut is stainless steel. Overall this regulator appears well made. I'll see how well the plastic (composite) outer housing lasts, but I hope essentially forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced a 25 year old Watts R2 regulator on a California Bay Area Home. Configuration on my regulator was a union inlet and a MNPT on the outlet. The older Watts regulator union thread diameter is slightly different and did require replacing with the new supplied union. (I've seem this before; sometime in the past, the industry change the major diameter of the male threads). The length was very close to the older Watts and did not require cutting and soldering fittings. I was able to easily dig down less than a foot to the horizontal run of the supply line which allowed enough movement of the inlet connection to thread the regulator to the outlet leading into the house. I am a do-it -yourself-er and with decent plumbing skills and it took me about an hour. The only concern i had is the none metal cover for the pressure adjustment spring. Not sure how that is going to hold up in the years to come; thus the 4 out of 5 rating for quality and value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works and constructed well, but a bit pricey Worked well and installation was simple. It dropped right in place (replacing an older worn out Wilkins regulator. I measured the PSI after installation and it was set to 50 as described.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does Not Meet Spec Valve reduces pressures, but don't believe the specs for pressure drop. This valve generated an 18 psi pressure drop at just 3 gpm. Yes, the screen is free of debris. Replaced valve with at Watts LFN55B. Granted the Watts valve is bigger, but the pressure drop for this valve match the Watts spec sheet.
