which way do you turn to get more pressure?

which way do you turn to get more pressure?
Asked by: Fergy
The LF25AUB is factory preset to 50psi (344 kPa) in a static condition. To adjust pressure setting, loosen the lock nut and turn the adjusting bolt clockwise to increase pressure, counterclockwise to decrease pressure.

what if the outlet pressure goes up to street pressure when there is no flow but maintains good 55 lbs on the outlet as long as their is a little flow?
Asked by: jd
If the pressure goes up while water is being heated in the water heater, this pressure increase could be due to you not having a working potable water expansion tank. That tank might have a popped diaphragm or may have lost pressure. The act of checking that tank out with an air gauge can initiate a slow air leak out of the tank, so another way to check the expansion tank pressure is to run water slowly in a sink (fill a cup in about 15 seconds), watch your water pressure level ( the gauge ideally should be just downstream of your check valve (if you have one) and your pressure reducer), turn the water off to the house upstream from the gauge while continually watching the gauge and then notice if there is a sudden drop off in pressure and notice if that quick drop off happens at a certain pressure point. If it drops quickly at 10 pounds, your tank is probably set at 10 pounds and it should be set a bit above your incoming water pressure so it likely needs air in the tank. If the pressure declines gradually, at a rate where you barely see the gauge move the whole time to 0, your tank is probably good. If the gauge moves quickly from the beginning of the experiment, the tank is probably waterlogged or even has a popped diaphragm. Push the air valve on the expansion tank at this point in the experiment in briefly and if you get water, it has a popped diaphragm and should be replaced. It is a good idea to replace it anyways because if the 2 halves of the rubber balloon have been crushed together long, they meld.

3/4 in. Brass FPT x FPT Pressure Reducing Valve is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well built pressure reducing valve but there is a design flaw. The union leaks. The O-ring in the... Well built pressure reducing valve but there is a design flaw. The union leaks. The O-ring in the union is too thin to hold supply side high water pressure; my supply pressure is 150psi. Other competitors use a think rubber gasket but Watts use a thin o-ring only. It's too thin. Applying teflon sealant on the o-ring stopped the leak temporarily but I don't think it can be a permanent solution. Other than that, it's a good valve. Water pressure and flow rate is good. I purchased a double sweat union model (3/4" LF25AUB-S-DU) at a local HomeDepot. It's not listed on website but local stores stock it. Double union model is easier to install and cheaper than FPT model. It's made in China.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I ordered this Lead Free Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) for... I ordered this Lead Free Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) for home use to replace a old failed PRV of same size/model, and maybe the failed unit was also not lead free as model number did not had word of LF. After replacement my home pressure got reduced to 60 psi instead of 110 psi. I got the work done by a professional licensed plumber as it was located on the mainline in my house. It was a perfect fit and was breeze to replace. So far it is working great, no leaks, no noise or vibrations either. The only negative thing, that I realized after reading the enclosed sheet with the product was that it is NOT 100% LEAD FREE was it contains some LEAD in it - probably around 0.25%! Maybe others who advertise Lead Free have same level of Lead in them too!

The unit was relatively easy to install - requires two good wrenches and joint sealant. . The problem I had - the first unit I purchased in a box marked 3/4 in. However after getting the unit home, I discovered the box contained a 1/2 in. unit. Back to HD - the next unit on the shelf was missing a part. Always check the contents of the box while in the store. Third unit was the correct one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A 20 minute swap out. The Watts valve is a replacement for a 20 year old valve with the same model number. The fit was exactly the same so no piping changes were necessary. It was a 20 minute change-out with the only requirement being a couple large pipe wrenches to break loose the existing 20 year old fittings. Amazing that Watts is still making the same model number after this many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should've bought sooner! The pressure regulator performed better than expected. Easy to adjust pressure due to seamless construction. My hubby, not a licensed plumber, was able to install without a hitch. Replaced one that died an ugly, wet death. Easy to read model numbers without squinting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked perfect Worked just perfect. It was easy to install because it replaced the exact same valve. A professional plumber put the original in and it only lasted 2 1/2 years but it had a chunk of gasket floating inside when I took it apart. It looks like it got in there when plumber installed. Our water would come on full pressure then drop off drastically then build back up to full pressure. Not is is full steady pressure. Factory set was actually 51 PSI whick was just great for me.
