We had a bit of a challenging toilet exchange situation (it was an old-fashioned water closet type toilet that had started leaking and needed to be replaced). They came out, assessed the situation, went and got different parts due to the specialization of the existing unit, and did a great job installing the new unit. Really pleased with the outcome!

I was thoroughly impressed with the service provided by Maier at URV project plumbing service. In just three hours, he efficiently replaced three toilets, cleaned up after himself, and even disposed of the old toilets. What pleasantly surprised me was that there were no additional charges for the wax ring and the new supply line. I’m recommending hire URV projects plumbing service.

How to Clean Kitchen Sinks and Drains

A pressure-reducing valve, or water pressure reducer, is an essential piece of equipment for any modern pipeline. It is a one-piece fitting with several outlets and is installed at the outlet of a common pipeline. The task of the valve is to regulate the pressure and reduce it before entering various plumbing fixtures. Today, the water pressure regulator installation is carried out in absolutely all rooms, since with its help, without additional energy sources, the water pressure in the pipe is quickly balanced.

The pressure-reducing valve is responsible for regulating the flow of water through the pipes of the water supply system. At the outlet, the pressure can be so powerful that the mixer simply cannot withstand it. To avoid possible breakdowns and leaks in the future, the valve is installed when installing the pipeline in the room. The main tasks assigned to the gearbox:

The PRV installation, or pressure relief valve, is carried out at the inlet of the pipeline to an apartment, house, or commercial premises. The pressure-reducing valve can be direct acting or indirect acting. In the first case, an additional effect of electrical energy is required, in the second, the internal energy of the controlled environment is used.

The Main Symptoms of a PRV Malfunction

Active use of the pipeline sooner or later leads to wear of the pressure-reducing valve. Even the highest quality and protection from external influences gearbox can fail. Signs of valve failure are:

The causes of malfunctions in the water pressure reducer can be blockages in the valve or impulse line or wear on any of the equipment parts. All this is corrected by pressure-reducing valve replacement.

To avoid a specific breakdown of the valve and its components, it is necessary to monitor the condition of the equipment. The most affordable way is to measure the water pressure in the pipeline at least once every six months. If the pressure does not change compared to the primary indicators, then the breakdown issues automatically disappear.

How to Replace the Pressure-Reducing Valve

The initial installation or water pressure regulator replacement is a laborious process that is performed by instructions and only with professional tools. URV Projects specialists and their invaluable experience allow customers to quickly and efficiently install the necessary equipment, including a water pressure reducer. Installation of such fittings is carried out as follows:
  • If necessary, the old one is removed (the water supply in the room is first blocked)
  • A mesh filter is installed in front of the new reducer
  • Manometers are fixed
  • The pre-start valve is being replaced.
The reducer can be installed on horizontal and vertical pipelines, but the main thing is that it should not be subjected to pressure from the outside. Installing a gearbox can be a difficult task, so the owner will need the help of a specialist. To quickly and efficiently prv valve replacement and use the water supply economically, you should contact the professionals of URV Projects. The specialist will quickly determine the scope of work and complete it as soon as possible.
