water pressure regulator valve installation


Can I install a pressure regulator valve in a copper pipe with flared fittings instead of sweating in fittings?

As long is the copper is soft copper tubing. You can not flare hard copper.

You can also use compression fittings.

What does this mean? OP said a pressure regulator, not a pump pressure switch.
