Residential Water Pressure Check Program F.A.Q.

Q: Is it free?
A: Yes, participation in the water pressure check program is free of charge.

Q: Are you only checking residential homes?
A: Yes, right now the program only includes checking residential homes. Dependent upon success of the program, it may be expanded to include commercial properties as well.

Q: Why is it important to know my water pressure?
A: Excessive pressure could harm water related appliances or burst your pipes. High pressure will also unnecessarily increase your water usage and therefore your water bill. In the case of this happening during the winter water averaging period, it could also affect your sewer bill.

Q: What is normal water pressure?
A: Normal water pressure is anywhere between 50-60 PSI.

Q: How soon will the volunteers check my water pressure?
A: Every effort will be made to complete the check within two weeks of application receipt.

Q: You just checked my pressure and it is over 60 PSI. Now what do I do?
A: If your pressure measurement is over 60 PSI, you can first attempt to adjust the pressure. Here is a link to an instructional video on how to adjust your regulator. However, if adjustments do not work, most likely the regulator is broken and you need to replace it as soon as possible with a new regulator.

Q: How do I replace my water pressure regulator?
A: Since the regulator belongs to the homeowner, you can either have it replaced by a plumber or if you want to replace it yourself, here is an instructional video
