Garden Hose


Normal....depends on the water pressure of the incoming service. If the house pressure is 40#, the hose will have about the same. If the house pressure is 80# the hose will be the same. Typically, "good" water pressure in a house is between 40 and 80#. Anything over 80# is high pressure and the installation of a pressure reducing valve is recommended.
