Why a pressure regulator

water pressure regulator ensures quality work of home appliances.She may be in danger when the pressure drop in the system, which can be up to 12 atmospheres (normal 4-8).It is important to establish control in the event that the house has a water heater.With the ever increased pressure or race heater safety valve will release water at all times, and the installation of the gear to avoid it. Before installing the gear you need to measure the pressure in the system with a manometer.

The principle of operation of the controller is that it compensates for the change of the input pressure and the output remains constant.Thus, the apparatus prevents the hammer and prevents the failure of m
easuring devices, such as pressure gauges.It can be installed on bends risers hot or cold water.

How to install a pressure regulator independently

Install pressure regulator should conduct Plumber.However, you can install the device yourself.To do this he will need a pressure regulator, the two shut-off valves (inlet and outlet), mechanical water filter, an adjustable wrench.

It is best to install a pressure reducing valve in a horizontal pipeline, but allowed its installation on a vertical pipe.Before the device is necessarily necessary mechanical cleaning filter.The pressure regulator is installed as an ordinary counter.

Shut off the water, cut the pipe, cut off the excess.Install shut-off valves, strainer, the regulator (manometer up), sealing the connection pads of a certain size, tape "fum" or tow.Himself gear must be installed behind the counter, between him and the counter put strainer and valve.Second valve must be behind the pressure reducer. Gates in the future much easier to dismantle a pressure reducer.

After mounting the gear you need to configure it.Open the valve on the inlet and the outlet close.Turn clockwise with a special key adjustment screw to increase the pressure and counterclockwise to decrease the pressure.Set in such a way to gauge the required value of about 3 atmospheres.

In the absence of a pressure gauge, use the factory settings - such a pressure regulator configured to be sold.For proper operation of the device from time to time carry out its cleaning.
