There are a variety of problems that can be caused by high water pressure: burst pipes, worn-out toilet fill valves, dripping faucets, and even ruptured water heaters. Every home should have a pressure regulating valve (PRV) to ensure the water pressure is at a safe level for the plumbing in your home. Fixing high water pressure should not be attempted by anyone but a licensed plumber, so contact Everest Plumbing if you suspect you have high water pressure.
