PRV Services We Provide

PRV Replacement: Over time, a PRV can wear out or become less effective, leading to high water pressure and potential damage to your plumbing. Our experts can replace your old or malfunctioning PRV with a new, high-quality unit, ensuring your water pressure is regulated to prevent leaks and pipe damage.

PRV Repair: If you're experiencing issues with your water pressure but your PRV isn't beyond its service life, our skilled technicians can diagnose and repair it. We address common PRV problems such as blockages, valve failure, or adjustment issues to restore proper water pressure and flow.

New PRV Installation: Not all homes come equipped with a PRV, but installing one can protect your plumbing fixtures and appliances from the damages caused by high water pressure. If your home lacks a PRV, we can expertly install a new valve, providing you with peace of mind and extending the lifespan of your plumbing system.

When Do You Need a PRV?

Signs Your PRV Has Failed

A properly functioning Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) is vital for controlling the water pressure entering your home, protecting your plumbing system from damage. However, like any component, PRVs can fail over time. Here are key signs that your PRV might be failing and needs attention:

  • High Water Pressure: If you notice a sudden increase in water pressure—water blasts out of taps more forcefully than usual—it could be a sign that your PRV is no longer regulating pressure effectively.

  • Low Water Pressure: Conversely, if water flow becomes significantly weaker and your PRV was recently adjusted or has been in service for a long time, it might be failing to open fully, reducing water pressure.

  • Noisy Pipes: Unusual noises in your plumbing, such as banging or knocking when water is running, can indicate pressure surges due to a malfunctioning PRV.

  • Water Hammer: A failing PRV can lead to water hammer, a loud banging noise in your pipes caused by sudden stops in water flow, which can damage pipes and fixtures.

  • Leaking PRV: Visible leaks from the PRV itself are a clear indication that the valve is failing and needs to be replaced or repaired.

  • Fluctuating Water Pressure: If water pressure seems to fluctuate unpredictably when using taps or showers, it could be due to a PRV that is not maintaining consistent pressure levels.

  • Increased Utility Bills: A sudden, unexplained increase in your water bill may be due to a failing PRV causing continuous high water pressure, leading to more water usage.


If you're experiencing any of these issues, it's important to address them promptly to prevent further damage to your plumbing system. Proven Plumbing offers expert PRV repair, replacement, and installation services to ensure your home maintains optimal water pressure.
