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

First of all, don't use this valve! It's a waste of money!

Which direction do I turn the adjusting screw to decrease the pressure

Asked by: Tom
Turn the nut counterclockwise to reduce the pressure downstream from the valve and clockwise to increase it.

3/4 in. Brass MPT x FTP Pressure Reducing Valve is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy Makes way to much noise. I removed it for a different model.
Date published: 2017-06-27
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.

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.

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 5 out of 5 by from Just what we needed We live full time in a travel trailer. The water pressure at the part we are in had massive water pressure. We blew out I don't know how many water lines. We tried the pressure reducers you can by for rv's. But we lost a ton of volume. We bought this unit and what a difference. All the flow we can want and pressure isn't killing the plumbing any more.

My primary residence PRV failed recently and caused our water pressure to ebb and flow, very frustrating. This one was a direct replacement for my old N55B M1 3/4" PRV, connections matched perfectly. Did not experience and of the noise issues many report. If this changes, I will update my review.

This particular valve is notorious for failing causing vibration throughout plumbing when water turned on. Could not adjust. Just replaced one that lasted less than a year.

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.
