High pressure water supply
We are staying a RV park in San Antonio and the water pressure at the park at each site is 110 PSI +. They do warn you as you check in to be sure to use a hose end pressure regulator at the water valve to protect your water lines and hose. So I pulled out my trusty brass hose end water regulator and screwed it onto the water valve and then hooked everything up. My water regulator has a small gauge and it indicated that I was at the preset 50 psi and everything worked fine until around 10:30 pm when I heard a noise around the bath area like running water. I went out side with a flash light and found water running out at the bottom of the hot water heater door and when I looked at the gauge on the regulator it showed over 100 psi. I turned off the water and opened the water heater door and found that the pressure regulator on the water heater had tripped. It is set at 100 psi. I bought a new hose end regulator this morning and I am back to 50 psi. I was surprised that my old regulator failed but I guess nothing last forever. Or maybe these things will fail if the pressure gets to high, 110 psi plus. I have never stayed in a part with water pressure this high. I just hope the new one holds up for a few days. I plan on turning off the water at the valve when we are gone and at night.
