Frequently Asked Questions

Water Pressure

Q: What if I think I have too much water pressure in my private residence?


A common way customers reduce water pressure in their private residences is by having a pressure reducing valve installed. Local hardware and home improvement stores sell these and can be of assistance. WATTS is a manufacturer of these types of valves and they have a helpful website:
These valves are always installed after the MWA water meter and on the plumbing system that you own. You may be able to install it yourself but 1) you should get a plumber to do this if you are at all unsure or lack the proper skills and 2) make sure you comply with the local plumbing code.
