Water Pressure


Water pressure varies throughout the city depending on the elevation of the home and the time of year.

If your water pressure is too low or too high inside your home you may need to adjust your pressure reduction valve. If you have one, it should be located inside your home where the water enters your house. It will look similar to the picture in Figure 1. Usually you can adjust it by turning the bolt shown in Figure 1 with a standard head screwdriver and an adjustable end wrench (crescent wrench). Turn the bolt in to increase the pressure and out to decrease the pressure.
