using pressure regulator on 8285ss Rockwood

our 8285ss has an internal filter system in the basement. What if any pressure regulator should we be using. We have tried three different regulators and there is no water volume at the taps. The management at the park told us to use a regulator beause of flucuating pressure.

I would remove the cartridge out of the filter and then see if the taps flow. Filter clogged. I think there is a check valve in the system that does't allow water when using the pump to nott flow out the city connection, it may be stuck closed and not allow any flow.

Using pressure regulator on 8285ss

I noticed lower pressure at the taps also and had new filter in place. So over the winter I purchased an adjustable regulator at Amazon so I can adjust it up a little to maximize pressure while still staying within safe limits of system pluming. I am hoping this helps this problem

A lot of times the one way check valve in the city water hookup tends to stick .
and severely restricts water flow. As the previous poster stated. One way to verify this would be to fill your fresh water tank and use your pump.
See if the pressure goes up.

A regulator will NOT solve your problem if there's a restriction as I stated above.
