What can I do about changes in pressure in my water?

Most changes in pressure (99%) are a result of internal plumbing issues, such as a deteriorating Pressure Regulating Valve (PRV) or backflow device. Because of our system’s hydraulic engineering, construction typically does not interfere with pressure, even as more homes are added to the pressure zone.  See how to adjust your PRV here. Keep in mind that internal pressures higher than 75 psi can possibly damage household appliances.
