This handy little tool is easy to use and can be picked up at most home improvement or hardware stores. It has an attachment very much like the end of a garden hose and hooks up to your faucet the same way.
Look for the faucet that’s closest to the water main — this might be in your basement or on the outside of your house. Make sure you have all your water fixtures and appliances turned off. Attach the pressure gauge to the faucet (make sure it’s on tight) and turn the water all the way on.
Give it a few seconds and take a look at the gauge. Ideally, you want your water pressure to be between 40 and 60 psi. Anything over 80 psi and you’re in the danger zone.
Pressure Reduction Valve
A pressure reduction valve, or pressure regulator is a device that is installed on the water main that slows down the water going into your home. The International Plumbing Code requires every home built after 2002 to have one of these installed. These valves have a lifespan of 7 to 12 years, so depending on when your home was built you might be due for an upgrade.
Older homes may not have a pressure reduction valve, and if you have high water pressure, getting one installed could solve your pressure problem almost immediately. It’s not a job for beginners, so if you’re not comfortable cutting pipes and working with some tools you might want to leave it to a professional.
