Pressure Reducing Valve

Simple Pressure Reducing Valves

Ensuring Practical, Safe Working Water Pressures Municipal and private water supply companies use pumps and pumping stations to boost water supply pressures in supply mains to be able to supply water for fire fighting, high rise buildings to overcome loss of pressure as the elevation increases, and to maintain water supply in water towers and supply tanks. Pressure in water supply mains can easily exceed 10 Bar. Most irrigation equipment has a maximum rating of 10 Bar, with a working pressure of approximately 3 Bar thus the installation of a pressure reducing valve on domestic systems where the municipal water main's pressure exceeds 5 Bar is highly recommended as a safety precaution. Higher pressures could rupture pipes, damage fixtures,and expensive equipment.
