How Much Pressure Can You Handle?

May contain: indoors, bathroom, and room

Anyone who is connected to the Mid Valley Metro Water System enjoys great static pressure off of our mainlines. We generally have anywhere from 100 to 110 p.s.i. entering into a home and it is a requirement of new homes to have a Pressure Reducing Valve down to approximately 75 psi.

What does this mean to the average homeowner? Most plumbing in homes is rated to at least 200 psi and you can count on good pressure into your showers and appliances. However, your job as homeowner will never be over!  Did you know it is recommended that supply lines ( yes, those little 1/4 inch lines going to toilets and your ice maker, etc!) be replaced every 5 years and check each year for leaks and signs of decay.
