Water pressure regulator

Tired of fooling with the fixed pressure reg. Looking at Valterra A01-1117VP.

Thinking I can go to 55 lbs.

Those who are wiser on this subject give me an opinion.

With a quality water pressure regulator vs. the cheap $10 jobs, you'd be surprised that you don't need to really increase the pounds all that much. I think mine is set somewhere in the ballpark of 40-45 psi (I haven't looked at it in a long, long time). And we never have complaints about water pressure.

I bought from RVWaterFilterStore.com and got a Watts regulator. Expensive, but quality components all around.

I have adjusted mine at a few CG as we were there after a weekend and there were fewer campers and the pressure went up. nice to have the gauge to see first hand. money well spent

Good information on this cw video about water regulators. I moved up to the 50-55 psi high flow model shown at around 4:45 in the video. Also got the Oxygenics shower head for more pressure in the shower. What a difference these two made.

I use the Valtera. I won't hook up my water supply without it. Very easy to adjust PSI. Have mine set at 50. Also use the Oxygenics shower head to improve pressure. Love both products.
