My pressure to my entire house seems very low.ive not tested it yet, but in looking for a prv this is all ive been able to find. Is it the prv? If so how do I adjust it?16532254162757300519310336877960.jpg

That’s a backflow protection. It’s not meant to drop pressure.

It could be the problem if it’s malfunctioning.


If you have a pressure reducing valve then you haven’t found it yet. They’re usually outside in the ground in warm climates or on the side of the house where the water line comes out of the ground to enter the house.

In cold climates they’re usually in the damp musty moldy basement.

Thank you so much! Ive looked all over and cant find a prv. Is it possible there isnt one at all? I live in SC by the way.no basement. Slab foundation.
