80 psi is on the high end? does it ever get higher?
I live on top of a hill, the pressure at the meter is around 100 psi or so but at the house I average 25 psi BUT there are overnight spikes that reach 50psi - not an issue for me but if you have spikes above 100 psi it could be an issue for you.
oh, i do have a pressure reducer... what you're looking at is the city side. after the PRV i have it dialed down to 50 psi, but i might bump it up just a tad. just wondering what anyone thought about a city pressure which seems high to me.
Calculate the differential water pressure of 2 residences 200 feet difference in elevation using a water tower supply with 27.28 inches being equal to 1 lb. and you may see why that high municipal water pressure needs to be that high in that area.
