High flow pressure regulator

We've had low water flow out of all faucets. I thought it was due to the water filter, so I removed the filter element from the housing. That didn't help, so I removed the pressure regulator from the city water hookup. That made a big difference. Can you recommend a pressure regulator that permits a high water flow rate?

I just bought one from camping world that is labeled 'high flow.' It think it is 50-60. But, i also put an oxygenics shower head in at the same time. BIG difference. All other faucets had better pressure also. Very pleased.

I also bought the 263A from the same supplier and have it set at 60 psi, it made a real difference.
I would check the little screen in your regulator to make sure it's not obstructed

Another happy RV Water Filter Store buyer here. I also bought the Oxygenics shower head (and again, am happy with it).

Strongly recommend both. The guy from RV Water Filter called me on a Sunday night to help me decide which unit to get.

I replaced the cheap device that is commonly called a regulator ( actually a restrictor) with a Watts regulator with a pressure gauge and all of my pressure issues went away. They are available at most RV supplies. I think I found mine on sale from Good Sam for under $50.00.

Yes. Last trip, brand new hi flow was clogged with scale after three days of use. One good slam on the palm produced a pile of sediment in the hand. They can get stopped up.

If we're voting, I also vote for the
RV Water Filter Store: Standard Filter Canisters for Whole RV

Side note, if your regulator is exposed to the elements go ahead and pay
the extra for the stainless steel oil filled gauge. I got the plain black painted
one and mine is now showing a little rust behind the glass. Wish I had the
SS gauge!

I bought this Oxygenics shower head from Camping World a few years ago and with both the shower head and the regulator I was able to have a decent shower even with a water pressure at near 25 psi at the campground
