There are pressure regulators that sell for a lot less than this one. They are fixed pressure reducers, mostly 45psi. They can be problematic. Check your RV's specs. My fixtures are rated at 60psi, so with this unit I can accurately set the city water pressure to what I like. I normally have it at 50 to 55 psi. This pressure vastly improves showers and dish washing. The pressure meter gives you an instant view of the water pressure...so if there is a problem, you can easily rule out the city water first.
Some tips on using this device:
1. This should be the first thing connecting to the campsite's city water connector. I follow this with a water filter and then my supply hose. By putting this regulator first, you protect your filter and hose as well.
2. If you want to adjust pressure, do it ONLY with all water turned off inside the RV. Make sure that no water is running or filling anywhere. Once done, gradually move the adjusting screw a bit. Wait 10 to 20 seconds and look at the pressure. Once set, you can begin using water. When water is running, don't expect the reading to always be at the set pressure.
3. Replace this unit after a year or two. All pressure reducers wear out. For safety, I replace mine every year. $50 isn't a bad investment in protecting my water system.
4. Use a water filter! There are lots of inline filters available. Most screen out particles bigger than 30 microns or so. this is enough to protect your fixtures. These inline filters do not purify the water. They just remove sediment in the water line. We never drink campground water. We do carry a good quality purifying filter and bottled water.
5. Avoid banging up the regulator. This unit is not indestructible. We keep it in a plastic container in our "garage" when we travel.
You will be surprised how much better a shower in the RV can be when you can control the city water pressure. This unit does the job at a good price.
Plus cost of return, don't forget
I'm please and it's doing the job of regulating the water pressure of my 5th wheel. If you take a close look at the photo you'll see that I added a few extras:
(1) short extension, extra hookup space,
(2) inline shut-off, and
(3) quick disconnect.
Hey, Low's Home had all three, minimal installation time and at a reasonable low price . .
No need for channel-lock pliers and no need to turn the water off and back on at the waterline hookup.
I open the tank gate and let it empty, fill and flush. It's that simple . .
My recommendation: 'YES''
Buy the adjustable Valterra first and save the cost of return; and,
I'm pleased with the quick disconnect and inline shutoff, they all work together.
(August 6, 2017) A year later the "Valterra A01-1117VP" is still doing its' job and yes, but I just replaced it with, 'Renator M11-0660R Water Pressure Regulator' and I also lowered my review rating from FIVE down to FOUR
Why? Water valve burst down below, no big deal but it seemed advisable to replace it.
For sale in case you're interested . .
