Water pressure regulators are designed as a plumbing safety feature that
maintains water flow while keeping the water pressure from getting too high. Water
pressure is an absolutely essential component of a properly running plumbing
system. In general, water pressure should be about 40 pounds per square inch
and have 60 PSI.
Without water pressure regulators, modern plumbing would simply not be possible. In residential settings, water pressure regulators are generally located near the water main outside a home. A commercial building is more likely to have several water pressure regulators that handle water flow and adjust to pressure based on elevation. In general, higher levels of water pressure are needed the higher up the floor of the building. It’s very important to not underestimate the
vitality of water regulators. Too much pressure can lead to leaks and even
explosions in some cases.
Double Check Valve Assembly
The double check valve assembly is an important safety feature in water pressure regulators. It prevents backflow and keeps water supplies from becoming contaminated. These parts work based on to principles: one serves as backup if the other is jammed open, and both work together to provide a protective seal to prevent leaks. In commercial and industrial scenarios, the double check valve can often be found in fire sprinklers, combi boiler systems, or lawn irrigation. Our double check valve assembly parts can keep your commercial plumbing needs running smoothly and without interruption.
Reduced Pressure Principle Assembly
The reduced pressure zone device is another safety feature
of water pressure regulators that prevents backflow and contamination. These are used in many water applications but not generally put in practice when it comes to
human waste disposal operations. A facility that requires constant water
pressure will need two reduced pressure zones running parallel to each other so
that one is always available for use, even if another one is down for repairs.
We carry reduced pressure principle assembly parts to keep yours up and running, without any lapse in this safety feature’s coverage.
