Pressure Regulators

Excessive pressure can cause your plumbing to leak or even rupture.  It doesn't take long at high pressures to cause damage, even a fairly brief "spike" can do it.  Pressure regulators are installed in your water supply line to limit the water pressure going into your RV.  RV plumbing is normally rated at 125 psi, but you certainly don't need to use that much. However, 60-65 psi is a very comfortable pressure for faucets and showers.  Parks don't always have that much, but when they do, having a regulator designed for good flow and pressure adjustability will allow you to take advantage of that better pressure without creating a problem with standard RV plumbing systems.  Many higher end RV pumps that come on RVs have 65 to as much as 85 psi.   New RVs often have their plumbing systems tested to 100 psi, or so, during the manufacturing process, but we recommend regulating incoming pressure to around 60-65 psi to provide a very nice operating system.  OUR REGULATORS ALL COME EQUIPPED WITH BRASS HOSE FITTINGS, READY TO HOOK UP.

What's The Difference From One Product to Another?
Assuming they all work as designed, why choose one over another?   The answer comes down to flow.  The bigger the regulator, the more water it will pass. Below, we include flow measurements we made on each regulator. The low figure was when the regulator was set for 40 psi, and the higher figure was when set for 60 psi.

 

Our Line of Pressure Regulators
We sell a complete line of regulators, all ready to install it in your system. Just take it out of the box and hook it up!

The lowest rung on the regulator ladder is occupied by small, in-line regulators. The brass unit is one typically included with your RV and sold in many RV supply houses. It has tiny orifices that the water must pass through and seriously restricts the overall water flow to your coach. This unit comes with a preset maximum pressure of 45 psi that cannot be changed.

 

 

The next step up is a slightly larger regulator made by Watts, a well-known supplier of industrial pressure regulators. This brass model, the H560, can be adjusted to change the pressure limit, and is available with an optional pressure gauge to enable you to monitor the regulated supply pressure. It is compact and offers good flow at higher park pressure and less flow at low park pressures. We got flows of 2 to 2.5 gpm with this regulator.

 

 

 

 

Similar to the H560, but an improved model is the Watts IR56. This unit has a little better flow than the H560, and it gave us 3 to 3.5 gpm in our test. It also seems to be more immune to clogging than the H560, so over time, it will require a little less maintenance.  THIS REGULATOR IS NOW DISCONTINUED BY WATTS, BUT THE REBUILD KIT AND GAUGE IS STILL AVAILABLE.

 

 

An industrial  regulator with larger orifices for better flow is the Watts Model 263A. This brass unit also offers an adjustable pressure limit and is available with a pressure gauge. Because of its size and lighter weight, it is our most popular model and it produced a flow of 4 to 4.5 gpm in out test.

 

 

The top-of-the-line regulator is another Watts unit, Model N55B. It provides the best flow rate of all and is well-built of brass. In our tests it produced a flow rate of 6 to 9 gpm.  A home style regulator suitable for mobile homes, cabins and RVs, it is larger and heavier than the other models, but the most durable of all.

All of these Watts regulators can be disassembled for cleaning and rebuild kits are available to keep them operating for many years.
