Pressure Reducing Valve
Pressure reducing valves save water, save energy, save waste water, save maintenance on pipes and other plumbing fixtures and save you money! Pressure reducing valves are installed after the main water meter in homes and other building to reduce the city water pressure coming in to a lower pressure. In the average home with a family of four, a pressure reducing valve can save between 30 and 40 THOUSAND gallons of water per year. Water pressure reducing valves can be used effectively in residential, commercial and industrial buildings.
Water Savings: Twice as much water flows through a system at 150psi pressure than at 50psi. Much of this additional water is wasted.
- Energy Savings: If less water flows through the system, then less energy is needed to heat domestic hot water. Calculations show that a Watts water pressure reducing valve can save as much as 30% on domestic water heating costs.
Wastewater Savings: When the community’s wastewater treatment load is reduced, cost benefits accrue to both the environment and your bottom line. Many municipalities prorate sewer usage fees based upon the water meter reading.
