Dangers of high water pressure

High pressure in a home's water system can be quite costly and potentially dangerous. Excessive pressure can lead to burst pipes, hot water heater, or boiler resulting in water damage and flooding. Additionally, high pressure can strain fixtures and appliances, causing premature wear and reduction in their lifespan. Moreover, elevated water pressure increases the risk of leaks and can contribute to higher water bills. Regular monitoring ensures that water pressure stays within safe levels. The optimal water level is between 50-65psi. Anything above that means that the water pressure regulator is not operating properly. If you do not have a water gauge set up on your main water line, you should have a plumber check the pressure every time they are on premises.
