Question on PRV replacement

276 Views 7 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  BlueWRXPride
I have a Phyn Plus and it has been reporting erratic water pressure. I talked to Phyn support, and they said it is likely I have a bad PRV and it needs to be replaced. The house is only about 5 years old, so it's a little surprising, but they're probably right. I saw a video online about replacing a PRV, and it was very simple since they were able to just unscrew the two nuts and swap them out with no soldering. Below are two pictures of mine. The PRV has a short 2" piece attached to it, and then the nut at the end has a wire through it that is attached to the water meter. What would be the easiest way to do this swap?

Checked with the water company to see if this is there equipment?
That sealed tag on it makes me think so.
It would be far easier to just rebuilt it in place with a repair kit.
There's only about 3 easy to replace parts.
I'd write down the the info on the tag and check on EBAY for it.
Just make sure you shut off the main line
You would be far less likely to have a leak if you just rebuilt it.
Give the water company a call first.
There may be some repercussions if you mess with it and it's there equipment.
