Cash Acme pressure regulating valves are designed to reduce incoming water pressure to a safe pressure to protect plumbing components. They also help to prevent pressure surges from entering the household from the main line. High pressure can cause damage to appliances and plumbing. A pressure regulator should be installed after the main line to help protect plumbing. The Cash Acme EB-45 is a half-cartridge based pressure reducing and regulating valve with a lead free bronze body. The valve resembles traditional regulators with a spring chamber and an adjusting screw but offers the high performance of a cartridge based valve. Fitted with the SharkBite Connection system the EB-45 can be installed using a push-to-connect connection that can be installed on any combination of Copper, CPVC, or PEX Pipe.

Since it is removable, there must be a jumper wire around the pressure regulator valve to maintain continuity if removed for maintenance.

Specs are identical and the price is within 50¢, so I'd say they're interchangeable. Only difference in the description is the word "direct". Not sure why they added that because when you turn the bolt on top the pressure goes up or down, which is about as direct as you can get.

Can this be installed vertically on a line? I only see them displayed horizontally.

Asked by BSDS January 8, 2018

Answers

Yes, water under pressure behaves the same wether it flows vertically or horizontally. Many pipes in your homes plumbing are vertical. The valve works great and is easy to adjust. I put it in-line before a Shark Bite pressure gauge and I installed a pressure gauge on my water heater to monitor it's internal pressure. Be sure to purchase the de-burring/beveling too for the Shark Bite connectors. It really helps ensure a proper fit and a leak free seal.

Works. Easy to install.
I found this at my local HD. No issues installing, pressure regulating or with water hammer. I wish that I had seen the Sharkbite pressure gauge at the time I found this. I would have definitrly installed that at the same time. Because I don’t enjoy working on my knees in my crawlspace, I pre-assembled this valve with an automatic cutoff valve and a manual cutoff valve on a 2x4, before installing it in the most easily accessible place in my crawlspace with 3/4” Pex. This replaced the almost impossible to access cutoff valve in the corner of my crawlspace, a long run of corroded copper tubing, and added the first pressure regulator this house has ever had on its incoming water line.

NOTE: Buy a water pressure gauge when installing. They run $10 or so at HD and the 3/4 will hook up to a hose bib or wash machine input. The regulator installed super easy, along with 3 other sharkbite products. I needed a new one, and the water shut off leaked, so this project ended up being multiple fixes. Overall nothing leaked once installed (all sharkbite, a straight connector, shut off valve, 90 degree, water pressure regulator) however the water hammering was aweful, directly from the regulator. I grabbed a guage and the pressure was set around 30. 4 or so full turns later I had the pressure up to 55psi, and no more hammering. Overall I'd buy again, but don't trust that it's 45psi from the factory.

I bought this water pressure regulator because my curbside pressure is about 78psi according to town. I was experiencing some pipe rumble. The pressure regulator works as described. I experienced none of the issues described by other users. I am still currently dialing in the pressure that works best for me. Very easy install and very easy to adjust. Buy with confidence.

First, the installation was as easy as you expect from a SharkBite product. I also installed a SharkBite pressure gauge behind this so I could easily read the pressure on the output side at any time. Both installed easily on my 3/4" CPVC with no problem. I do recommend buying the deburring (sp?) tool to smooth out the edges once you cut the pipe which can be found in section with all the SharkBite connectors and tools. Now, let me address the reviews about "water hammer". This really not the fault of this product. I see other people said they ripped these units out and bought "the right one". I have 120 psi coming in from the street and this is factory set to 45 psi on the output. I had some water hammer when I installed, but I adjusted my pressure up to 60 psi, which is more where I wanted it anyway, and the problem went away. If you still have water hammer after adjusting your pressure up to where you want yours to be, you may have to install a water hammer arrestor as well. Some of the other units mentioned in the not so good reviews as replacements may have those built in, so why throw away a perfectly good pressure reducer when all you have to do is increase your water pressure into the house a little to resolve and at worst, install an arrestor. Do a YouTube search on water hammer and you'll see what causes it and why it's really not the fault of this pressure reducer.

I'm a big fan of sharkbite's products. I used them when I remodeled my kitchen. I plan to us them when I remodel my bathroom. I was surprised to see HD stocking these Sharkbite Pressure Regulators. I was actually ready to purchase a Watts brand regulator before I stumbled upon this one. I read most of the reviews and I'll admit I was a little concerned to see reviewers complain about the hammering issue. Long story short, after I completed the regulator install and turned the water back on from the street. I also had the hammering problem. It was pretty bad and I was very concerned that all my work was for not. But I came back up the my computer and read a reply from Sharkbite Customer Support on one of the previous reviews. I followed exactly what they said and my hammering issue went away!!!!!!!! I had to increase the pressure if anyone is wondering. I can run all the faucets and the shower without noticing any lose in pressure. My old regulator was a complete mess, I dont think I was getting any more than 20psi from that crusty dinosaur! I'm very proud of my work. There wasnt much play in my copper pipes. I had to get creative thats for sure. Good luck to you all.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I needed this pressure regulator to solve a problem with the pipes banging when shutting off the water, mainly at the kitchen sink. It happened sometimes when shutting of the shower too. The guy at Home Depot said it's likely there's too much water pressure coming into the house so I would need to put this regulator on the incoming water line. I was kind of surprised how easy this plumping project was. I'm glad though that I had all the right tools, especially the mini pipe cutter. It's perfect for small spaces. The instructions are clear and easy to understand. They tell you exactly how much pipe you need to cut out and how to make sure the pipe is nice and clean before you slide the sharp bite connector on. I had to work in a very tight spot and I can't imagine having to use a soldering torch in this spot. The easy, slide-on connections are well worth the extra money.
