When do I need a pressure reducing valve for my booster pump?
We recommend using a pressure reducing valve in most booster pump applications with incoming pressure to avoid over-pressurization of pipes and fixtures. Most home plumbing fixtures are rated for no more 85 PSI, and increasing the water pressure above this greatly increases the possibility of damage and leaks.
By using a pressure reducing valve, we regulate the amount of pressure going in to the pump so the pressure won't become too high in the event your public water pressure spikes upward.
