I still use mine. I'd rather use it and be safe then not use it and oops, too much water pressure blew a line out.

X2 - our FR TT/Fiver Owner's Manual makes no mention of safe pressures for the plumbing. However, the section for winterizing with compressed air is instructive: "Set the pressure to no greater than 30# (pounds)..." We'll stick with the pressure regulator.

Or you could just pop in an accumulator tank. Keeps high pressure out of your lines and also keeps pressure up when you have a low pressure source. You're pump will run less frequently as well.
